Presumably you can chroot to this system and use it. So you _could_
just use it that way --- "schroot" may help. This would avoid the

Not clear exactly what you mean by this. There is "kexec" which

initrd. However, I think it is not enabled by default on the ARM

I don't know the answer to your remaining questions.
