so have a small one with the kernel for booting, and a mount a big one over
it. Or even hardcode the "real" / partition into the kernel, so that the
small-inode one isnt visible. Or add code to your firmware.
Not trying to be nasty... I really just want to point out ways to survive.
E.g., with our 2-stage bootblocks, you cant make / a LFS, either. Same
methods apply here.
