The order of the scripts is determined first, for this steps all scripts
and their REQUIRE/BEFORE/whatever keywords need to be present.

Then scripts are run in the calculated sequence order.

Somewhere in this sequence /usr becomes available. All scripts having binaries
in /usr have to have proper REQUIRE: mountcrit{local,remote} flags.
