AFAIK it requires a binary, but that binary already exists: /usr/bin/logger

It's part of util-linux (though the manpage says "BSD General Commands
Manual" ;-)), and we'd have to move it to /bin to get at it before
mountfs.  It accepts a bunch of options; probably the most useful are
the one to specify facility/priority and the one to turn on PID logging.
Maybe also the one to log the message to stderr as well as syslog.
