I'd say probably not in this specific case, but if you're trying to push
a change upstream where it needs to handle the general case, I'd suggest
that listing out all the cases where you do and do not *need* the /run
mounted in the initrd is just too much effort. So I'd still suggest the
upstream project should still do this unconditionally.
