Updated patch attached.  This one has been tested in a VM, and will
allow a machine to boot and transition to /run safely.

Minor outstanding issue:
/etc/init.d/mountall.sh fails.  This is due to (apparently) / and /proc
already being mounted, leading to a 32 exit status.  Maybe an mtab

In order to work properly with bind mounts on freebsd kernels, I've
synched domount and domtab logic so that they behave identically.
However, I'm seeing some odd double bind mounts in /proc/mounts
and an incomplete /etc/mtab, so there's possibly something not quite
right here.

Apart from this one issue, everything else is working fully.
