If your /usr doesn't require kernel modules (e.g., same harddisk and
filesystem as /), you can create an initramfs consisting of Busybox
and 2-line /init (mount /usr and switch_root), and forget about it
after adjusting bootloader configuration. I guess that OpenRC could
even opportunistically try to "fstabinfo --mount /usr 2>/dev/null" in
init.sh to support such usecases.
