rescue.{target,service}, emergency.{target,service}, busybox, and minimal
binaries useful for rescuing a system. This can be used in situations where
live-image booting is not an option, or where the sysadmin prefers the
option of initrd emergency/rescue functions. Also, we should maybe stop
including emergency.target with the systemd hook, since it doesn't seem to
work in most cases.

Go for it! I will enable that hook and have it everywhere, since I
regularly need that shell.

But please also add rescue.target and rescue.service. emergency.* happens
on my systems before the USB drivers are loaded that I need to have my
keyboard functional.

I would also appreciate if my passwd/shadow/group files would not be leaked
into the initrd by default (using *.initrd in favor of the real files if
those are available).

Best Regards,
