No disagreement there... I'm much in favor of continuing to support
/usr on its own filesystem for a variety of reasons. And I
acknowledge the circularity of the argument was only partial (I did
qualify that by calling it *somewhat* circular). My point was that,
playing devil's advocate, it's not enough to suggest that lacking
the tools/logic in the initrd to mount an encrypted /usr is reason
alone to have /usr separate from the / filesystem.
