By the way I came to a "dark" point : how does systemd knows that he is
started in fallbackmode ?

I see no difference in the grub.cfg in the kernel options, and no
relevant differences in the initramfs (more modules available and a few
lines in ".../modules.devname")

Did I miss something or is he doing magic with the name of the initrd

I found no information of how systemd does that (for the rescue there is
a "kernel option" in the man file, but for the emergency there is nothing)
