I have prepared patches
(https://github.com/teg/initscripts-arch/commits/bootlogd) that mounts
/run if it is not already mounted in initscripts.

I'll push them out if /run is added to filesystem (my requires /run to
exist, but an existing /run without write permissions will not cause
any problems, so it would be best to add this to filesystem first and
then for initscripts to follow).

Do the filesystem maintainer(s?) agree to add this?
