I have done some more work on the Pyra and quite some progress:

* login / emergency shell issue has been solved (comes if there are entries in /etc/fstab for drives that are not available - initd + mount -a simply skip them)
* nodm and X11 still do not start; Xorg fails with a segfault; if I remove xorg.conf it starts into LXDE - but without rotation and our specific configs
* ssh into the device also works now (needs the emergency shell issue solved because the sshd is not started in single-user.target)
* booting is slow because we have some /etc/network/interfaces.d which do not exist - this makes systemd wait for timeouts

The remaining significant issues are still X11 setup and networking. And the change to fstab has the side-effect that e.g. /mnt/nand is no longer automatically mounted if available.

Generally the biggest challenge is to modify the config patches in a way that they still work on Jessie :)
