This was hard work for me (I even wrote a minimum C program), but I've
learnt more things.

I don't know. Maybe the proper behavior of piuparts should match
debootstrap's. This willwork with any dist given kernel is >= 3.16.
The kernel doc, says either mknod, or symlink or bindmount. piuparts
now (after this merge) does mknod+bindmount.
