There's something I've been meaning to do for a while, but my time is
very short recently. I'm telling you this, because I have the feeling if
I do, there'll be a patch for it tomorrow :)

I don't want to leave dangling mounts in initramfs that are invisible
from the system. This would involve the following:

1) Don't bind /bootmnt into the root, but mount --move it there.
2) Don't bind _mnt_bind file systems into the root, but also mount
--move (or mount them there directly)
3) After mounting, mount --move all aufs branches into a directory in
the root.

This way, nothing will be left in rootfs and invisible for us. I don't
know a good name for a directory, so I'll stick to /bootmnt. A layout
could be like:
/bootmnt/image (move the image here)
/bootmnt/isomounts/loop0 (move /mnt/loop0 here)
etc. What do you think?
