No, it's not about "patches". More and more things just need /usr at 
boot time, and the solution is to mount it in the initramfs.
The only alternative would be to keep moving stuff from /usr to /, which 
kind of defeats its purpose.
Also, mounting /usr in the initramfs allows to explore the / to /usr 
move, which if practical will bring many benefits and allow supporting 
new features.
