Bug#516914: live-initramfs: should check if /var/log is writable before copying

Package: live-initramfs                                                                 
Severity: wishlist                                                                      
Tags: patch
Justification: cosmetical

The attached patch just adds a check before trying to copy live.log to the 
newly mounted root filesystem. When using the "exposedroot skipunion" options, 
then /var/log may not be writable at this time, resulting in an error message 
during bootup. The patch fixed this.
