With /usr-merged layout (default since buster IIRC), a separate /usr

installer (rescue 1.86) but not backported to bullseye installer
That explains it. I can't open the root patitiion, because rescue
system says it's not a root partition until I try what is actually
/usr. But, I have finally given up separate /usr, and just lumped it in
with the pile. But in bookworm it should work?
Bookworm's installer rescue mode should detect a separate /usr in
/etc/fstab and offer to mount it before running a shell in the root
partition, like previous versions already did with a separate /boot or
/boot/efi. Other improvements include properly unmounting nested
filesystems (e.g. /boot/efi then /boot).
