There's a race condition in one of our (non-poky) builds which involves
a rootfs getting deleted while a pseudo process has a db in it open.
This caused me to realize that there existed a pseudo database in a
target filesystem, which made me panic. And we have a few really strange
reports I've never been able to reproduce where target filesystems
under qemu went pear-shaped in ways that look like pseudo suddenly
got really, really, confused.

Like say what would happen if a target could wipe out its own filesystem
permissions, because they were in its rootfs. :P

I haven't tested this super thoroughly, but I can still complete builds
and SDK builds with it, and it makes sense.
