Let's leave kmod as is for now. We'll get the /usr mount functionality
ready for mkinitcpio and roll that out for testing after you repackage
u-l 2.20.1 for me.

Well, the "possible" part is only made possibly by kmod-3 not throwing
any show stoppers. It hasn't... yet.

14f66ad6^..46c59b51: fixes bugs that Gerardo pointed out about mount not
behaving properly with regard to attempting canonicalization of pseudofs
mount sources. This is visible in the form of /run being mounted with a
source of /run (rather than just run). It also crops up in a few other
situations [1] and is is varying degrees of annoying, but isn't fatal.

d466c6a1: alters the -s, --fstab option of findmnt -- allows an optarg
to point to an arbitrary fstab. I'd like to leverage this for mounting
/usr from early userspace.
