** a

mount -n -t ext4 -o ro /dev/sd-something /newroot


** and (now comes the busillis)

exec /sbin/switch_root /newroot /dir-of-new/init

There is no s6-switch_root equivalent => question: will a
s6-switch_root be implemented? I wonder how the trade off in
space, speed and efficiency by using (static) s6-mount and
s6-switch_root would be shaped (for example, I would then have a
perfectly empty /../initramfs/lib, nor would I need to do any
