Yeah, I figure Requires= might be slightly more appropriate for this,
given that it fails on its own if the device ends up not being available

I think for most purposes we should consider the initrd mostly
read-only, hence I wouldn't rely on this check, even though it might
effectively make the dep unnecessary...
