Actually, I don't pretty understand the reasoning behind skipping the default
dependencies on /usr mount (commit b24de9d2, but the commit message doesn't
So hypothetically there are three solutions of different ugliness and
- introduce yet another target (all-fs-pre.t?)
- revert b24de9d2
- add explicit Before=usr.mount to the resume unit
