    usage: pivot_root OLD NEW

    Swap OLD and NEW filesystems (as if by simultaneous mount --move), and
    move all processes with chdir or chroot under OLD into NEW (including
    kernel threads) so OLD may be unmounted.

    The directory NEW must exist under OLD. This doesn't work on initramfs,
    which can't be moved (about the same way PID 1 can't be killed; see
    switch_root instead).
