I also asked this at
and didn't get an answer, but was prompted enough by questions to
maybe have figured it out; at least / now is mounted rw at root.

I think the problem was that the /etc/rcS.d/07checkroot.sh symbolic
link to /etc/init.d/checkroot.sh was missing. I have no idea how;
don't see a related bug report. I'm curious if anyone knows.

I'm also curious what actually does determine boot order as of wheezy
currently. I see the dependency annotations in /etc/init.d scripts,
and what I guess is a rendering of those in /etc/init.d/.depend.* (and
those files were also recently updated; does insserv do that? I ran it
thinking it'd give me command line options), but also the /etc/rc*
