We've had some discussion on this before , and I've suggested to copy
the content of livecd/usb recovery disk onto a spare partition so that
you can boot into that if necessary. The advantage of using this
approach is that it eliminates the burden of maintaining the "/ is a
self-contained boot disk that's independent of /usr" use case.
