Ahh, okay. I suppose what I'm wondering is what the advantages are to
mounting /run (if the remaining interfaces in the list aren't used)?
It looks like mounting /run occurs pretty soon in core/main.c. Could
it be that the only advantages of mounting /run early on are for using
the more advanced systemd initrd interfaces, such as giving control
back during shutdown? Or are there benefits in doing this even for the
most minimal of initrd?
