When to mount /lib and /usr/lib ?

I'm really unsure whether this is the list to ask this question on
with upstart not yet implementing a dependency based boot sequence the
upstart-devel list seems inappropriate to me.
In the course of my tiny usb-booster project  security
considerations (cf ) make it necessary to verify the SHA256 sum
before mounting /lib resp. /usr/lib partitions from a memory stick.
The question now is if it's early enough to mount /lib when rc?.d
scripts are run or should it even be done early in inittab? Also take
into consideration that calculating the SHA256 sum of the whole /lib
partition takes about 20s while /usr/lib requires an ample 90s.
If interested you may also want to refer to  where I try to give
some motivation, caveats and outline how to use the approach.
If anything seems unclear feel free to use the "Ask a question" button on
Thanks in advance for your comments
ps: Please let me repeat what I wrote when pushing the code to lp:
