We are in a position where we can cheat, though. Since we don't
automatically support read-only root partitions, we can just make /run
be on the root fs, and assume that admins who've already demonstrated
enough cleverness to cope with /etc/motd, /etc/network/ifstate,
/lib/modules/*/modules.* and so forth can cope with adding an fstab
entry for /run.
