Hmm, why don't we change '/' to reside on a LFS while we're at it?
After all there are some performance advantages, and who _really_ needs
crufty old FFS anymore anyway?  I don't see any reason a sane person
wouldn't want a unified '/' and '/usr' sitting on a nice LFS partition.
Probably the only reason Ken & Dennis didn't do it this way is because
they hadn't realized it was the only sane way to do it.
