That's true however pid1 was designed to minimise this, systemd seems
the opposite with no regard to this. Most OS's install multiple kernels
to fall back on, I guess the same is now true for those who choose an
unnecessarily complex pid1, especially as the same author has promoted
no need for a statically built fallback root, due to busybox.
