what is the difference between emergency, rescue and single-user?
On F21, systemd-216-12.fc21.x86_64, they all boot into something that
presents itself as "Welcome to emergency mode!" and they all require a
root password. In case of booting into emergency.target, I can see
"Starting Emergency Shell" in the console output. In single-user and
rescue.target, I can see "Starting Rescue Shell", but they all look the
same. systemd.special(7) doesn't help much.
