Thanks for responding. It's mostly an initscript patch that checks if 
for file systems mounted on tmpfs (e.g. if we put /var/lock, /var/run or 
similar there to save hitting the disk) and saves and restores subtree 
structure (if changed) at shutdown and startup. It saves about 100-200 
writes on startup/shutdown.

I thought init scripts are pretty distro specific, and since this is 
mostly an init script patch...

It's not a bug fix, it's a feature addition.

This patch is not that low a level. :)
