With the way it is, when you boot the system of the hdd, it will
boot, but you wont be able to login or do anything else useful. The problem is
that /mnt/usr is another mount point and another cpdup has to be run.

Attached is the patch for this + added some cleanup (deletes /mnt/autorun* &

how did that ever work?

It does work usually, but sometimes it doesn't.

Not sure if working or not working is correct here. Question is if cpdup
is supposed to not cross the mount_hammer mountpoint only (which is '/'
so it should work) or is it also supposed to not cross the mount_null
mountpoints (in which case it shouldn't work)?

Failure seems kinda random, e.g. some weeks ago, I ended up with an
empty /boot when installing with Re-running the script
without modification fixed things.

Sounds weird? I think so too.
