Description Kilian Klimek 2011-09-02 19:50:07 UTC
Attached in a patch against current that modifies rcorder to allow it
to run rc-scripts concurrently during boot. The purpose is, of course,
to speedup the boot process. The speedup can be quite substantial. I
measured a speedup of up to 30% (some numbers to support this can be
found at https://github.com/kil/rcorder in the README).

A few notes about the patch:

- The modifications in /etc/rc.d/ are required to make sure cleartmp
  doesn't run at the same time as the scripts modified (they create
  temporary files in /tmp).

- To ensure compatibility, the modifications to rcorder don't affect
  the default invocation of it in /etc/rc. The ordering of the rc-scripts
  that is generated is identical to the ordering that is generated now.

Fix: Patch attached with submission follows:
