If this is a concern to you, you can install the grml-rescueboot 
package and/or a similar on-disk rescue image which will provide you 
with a complete rescue environment.

In some case you can, in some others you cannot.
But if you have a complete bootable rescue environment, which if 
slightly tuned is going to be as big as one or two initramfs (IOW, 
trivially small), then you are safe against any kind of crashes.

I am not going to argue about this again right now.
