Re: Boot poster challenge

About the dhcp delay, why not just use the lease from the previous boot? If not expired and for desktops only, this should be configurable for notebooks versus desktops ofcourse.

given the 7 second disk read time... 10 seconds is a bit unrealistic.
One of the critical paths will be getting an IP address and mounting the
/home dir over nfs... ethernet negotiation can easily be 10 seconds
already with gige, and DHCP is depending on that to complete before it
can get a lease.

But if you're stalling on network I/O, we could run the things that
don't need the network to be there at the same time.  There's enough of
it that I don't think dhcp should actually delay booting, if it's async.

Of course, if you're using NetworkManager, it already is... but there're
some kinks in that that still need smoothing over, like the part of
ntpd's initscript that does the initial clock sync never getting run
while the network is up.
