Yes, the libs probably need moving...

The initramfs uses dynamically linked binaries these days and will grab
the libraries from wherever they are.

I suspect that we won't be able to get them fixed for test1 purely due
to timing (although if they get built early today, there's a slight
chance).  But having a caveat of "you can only test this if you don't
have a separate /usr" isn't terrible for test1.  Especially as the rest
of the support also requires changes which aren't in packages yet...
