Efficient in what way?

Have you looked at the volatile-binds recipe in oe-core? Its job is to
setup enough bind mounts to enable systemd to run from a readonly
rootfs. Although it's currently systemd specific (it only provides a
systemd service file, no init script) it might give you some clues
about how to setup bind mounts at boot time.
