Part of the problem here is that api-remount-fs still relies on
/etc/fstab to remount the root fs. So, this will never work without

I guess the logic needs to be changed to use options from the
appropriate / or /usr mount units.

Regardless, I'd suggest mounting your rootfs as RW, and make sure you
fsck in early userspace before the device is mounted.
