Proper portability means scripting for a POSIX sh, and /bin/sh can
handle those scripts.  In the majority of cases replacing == by = in

We'd need something for fsck and thereabouts though...  if /usr is on,
for instance, an ext2 file system (which is part of the kernel after
all), we need the tools early in the boot process, before /usr is there.
