It's initrd that first tries to mount tmpfs filesystems on /root (and

Is the stock initrd supposed to work like this? When I boot my production system, I end up with tmpfs mounted on /run:

$ df

udev               4027784         0    4027784   0% /dev

tmpfs               807948        20     807928   1% /run/user/1000

Also, I don't understand why it needs to mount the root filesystem to /root.
