Thanks chris and JD
It seams I couldn't describe my issue clearly.

As you said, "passwd" or "less" may be or may not be essential for some users!
But, without "udev" or "device-mapper" system couldn't boot at all;
I'm looking for these packages, which are essential for a proper boot.

Clearly: I need a minimal list of those packages which are "critical
for booting" a system and without just one of those packages booting
is impossible. (A truly minimal)
