linux-initrd: Mount / as a unionfs when asking for a volatile root.

* guix/build/linux-initrd.scm (make-essential-device-nodes): Make
  /dev/fuse.
  (boot-system): Add #:unionfs parameter.  Invoke UNIONFS instead of
  copying files over when VOLATILE-ROOT? is true.
* gnu/system/linux-initrd.scm (expression->initrd): Add #:inputs
  parameter.
  [files-to-copy]: New procedure.
  [builder]: Add 'to-copy' parameter; honor it.
  (qemu-initrd)[linux-modules]: Add 'fuse.ko' when VOLATILE-ROOT?.
  Pass UNIONFS-FUSE/STATIC as #:inputs; change builder to pass #:unionfs
  to 'boot-system'.
