I guess we need some FHS lawyers to come tell us what to do when there
are conflicting rules :-P

To me it seems like /var/lib should just be available in early boot.
Why isn't it, is this so early it's mounted read-only?

iirc machine-id would normally be created on demand the first time you
boot with a new install, so it will fail if there's no way to write
