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.
