Yes, you should include commit message if you want to continue with this in v2.

Then I think, that your approach is wrong. You should output "not doing foo"
at the place where you're "not doing foo", so this LOG line belongs probably
to initd/early.c (but I'm not saying, that you should do that) where you're
not mounting the stuff in case you detect container.

Please note, that procd is used by all targets, even those tiny ones so it
would make sense to add more logging (increasing the binary size) if it's
really necessary and it provides any valuable clue during the debugging
