As I understand it, the desired solution here is "mount /usr in the
initramfs". If your platform of interest is Debian/Ubuntu you could help
with getting the patches on
<https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=652459> landed (and
its dependencies resolved), and then we could stop caring about whether
/usr is separate or not altogether?
