Unless I'm missing something, this seems like a rarely needed special
case to me. How about simply adding a custom preinit file to your
firmware through files/ instead?
Since the preinit script runs boot_run_hook preinit_mount_root just
before the config restore, you should be able to add your code in the
right place and use it to delete or move sysupgrade.tgz.
