With that we can't actually ship /etc/ in the image any more (unless
we have some fancy overlayfs, which we can't rely on), so we have to
copy them from somewhere inside the r/o image.

Also, you still need a pristine version of what should be in /etc so
that you can update the files in /etc/ on image updates.
