For the first one, replace L+ with L for the /etc/mtab entry.

For the second one, add "/var/lib/systemd auto synced none none" to etc/system-image/writable-paths.

Merge proposal is for /var/lib/systemd. The mtab problem should take a better solution than my current simple hack.

The first /etc/mtab part is not critial. Maybe we file it as another bug for it.
