Well, when I started this thread I did not know it get so much discussion.
Anyways, I'm not worried about it any more.
My root= on my kernel boot line is using /dev/by-uuid/ so if the
initramfs can find the root device, I'm sure it can find the /usr
device from the rootfs /etc/fstab.
I've not noticed any breakage on all my system's that have a seperate
/usr, apart from the message doing boot.
As long as the message and any potential problems from a seperate /usr
go away when the initramfs hook is completed, I'll be happy.
