As mentioned on IRC: I agree with the idea, but maybe we could go one
step further:

Add /bin/cp from coreutils and rather than just creating
/run/initramfs, copy the whole initramfs to /run/initramfs so we have
access to the whole initramfs from the real system.

This is a prerequisite of proper shutdownramfs, but I think it could
also open the door for other interesting features, so we shouldn't
necessarily link it to the shutdown stuff.
