D-Bus has its config there, we rely on D-Bus, so this would be the
first thing to fix. Unless this is done, the warning is really useful.
It's more like a "taint" flag that tells "you are on your own here"
than anything else.
It's similar to udev, nothing really in udev relies on /usr, but sure
things go wrong in non-interesting ways, and I stopped caring what
people do in their udev rules, and just tell everybody to copy /usr
over to the rootfs. :)
