Other alternative would be to:

lbu include /path/to/mymount
lbu exclude '/path/to/mymount/*'

and your dir would be included in the apkovl.

you could have modified /etc/init.d/localmount too. lbu detect its
changed and saves your version.

However, since alpine is designed to run from ram, it might not be a bad
