That's too hard. Just mount the formatted /dev/sda2 as e.g.

I gave that a try just to see what would happen. It led to some
unpredictable results. I got a bunch of messages about how preserving
permissions of various files in /var/log was
unsupported. In addition, some of the binaries were whining about
not being owned by root and wouldn't execute. for example
Another example was /run. Screen wouldn't execute, giving me
a message like
/run/screen: permission denied.
So I'll just stick with my method since I know it works.
Anyway, I did get the system migrated successfully in the end.
