dump works on file systems, not individual files or directories.
if home is something mounted separately, then you run a dump
for that.   Same for /usr.   If /usr is just a directory under
root (/) and not a separate file system, then taking a dump of /
will get /usr.

I don't have a list of your mounted filesystems.
