This could be a fairly workable solution, if we could also figure out how to disable the startup mount.
Did you try removing the mount point directories (/mnt/us and /mnt/base-us)? But the failed mount could make it reformat your USB drive on reboot, and may even brick it for that matter... Unintended consequences are rarely planned for.
