I think this should be safe.  We certainly never intentionally
mount /run in a chroot (it's only done at boot time).  We also
don't do a bind mount on upgrade when in a chroot.  However, it
certainly wouldn't hurt to do the umount just in case someone
else does mount it (but whether this is worth doing, I can't say).
