Typically your boot device is mounted at /boot (or, arguably, is the 
initrd) which isn't affected by the merge.

Personally, I think the merge is perfectly well reasoned, and I'm glad 
to see the system simplified.  However, the wisdom of the merge is no 
longer a useful debate.  It is coming, and separating / and /usr in your 
partitioning is no longer advised.  You will lose functionality in 
future releases if you continue to do so.
