Again we come to what "critical" means.  If you have your /build in your
/etc/fstab, you boot will still fail if you can't mount that filesystem
(right)?  "critical" in the current context is "should be mounted
earlier than other filesystems", originally for a separate /usr and then
later tweaked for /var.
