It is not a matter about siding. If our boot process requires glib or
dbus we are sore idiots if we aren't either of them available by that time.
Luckily we do not *need* that at boot time but we can use daemons
leveraging it after the file system hosting them is mounted.
Same could be said for udev rules. If udev by itself can survive on the
bare / till we mount our filesystem we are fine, if it does need to
access the pci-id database we have either to provide it in a way or another.
