Something else to think about: do we want to carry this back to the initcpio?
Ah, yes, we probably do (like what we do with /proc and /sys).
We kill every process before leaving initramfs, and in initramfs, everything is writable. IMO, there is no need to keep a persistent /run between initramfs and system.
Sorry, I don't know the details of initramfs, so I might be wrong on this, but shouldn't the udev database (former /dev/.udev, now /run/udev) be preserved?
This database is (re)created when we (re)start udevd in rc.syinit. Udev doesn't know that it was running before, so there is no need to reuse any database.
I was thinking with regard to mdadm now: Maybe mdadm stores some valuable data there.
