Good points.

1) This was a bit of a hack, need to look into doing it right
(mounting with a "prefix").

2) We should probably fsck bouth /usr and / before mounting them in
the initramfs (doesn't really make sense to boot from a potentially
broken disk, only to fsck it afterwards with a fsck binary stored on
the disk itself...). Otherwise, we could just mount /usr ro and
remount rw in rc.sysinit.
