Other than tradition, for what reason do you put /usr on a different filesystem?
- I think that the probability that defective hard drive sectors will hit a small partition is less. So your „repair partition” will probably boot at least in emergency mode with more tools than any initramfs.
I think that small file systems are less error-prone as well.- Rescue DVDs may not support modern file systems because of older kernels. Here /usr was reiserfs for years, then switched to ext3, new systems have ext4 now. But / was ext2 for a long time (good enough for small partitions), now it has ext3. So it can always be repaired with a rescue DVD.
So I am not really interested in making the important boot/repair partition bigger than necessary.
