While I won't debate that it probably isn't strictly essential, dracut
handles unmounting root for systemd just fine (well, at least on
non-nfs - the version I'm using with an nfs root struggles in this
regard, though unclean shutdown on nfs with no files open probably
isn't really a problem).

Is dracut still not widely used?  I know that it was all the fashion
for a decade or two for every distro to build their own initramfs, but
I don't get why anybody wouldn't just make the switch - it is far more
capable and configurable.
