I already posted some results with different rhgb/readahead
combinations.  Before I try all other options, I'd much rather complete
the work, put it online and let people try it out.  Some of the issues
seen in these charts (e.g. 'modprobe floppy') are specific to my laptop.

Ha, no horizontal bar for this one:

That's with runlevel 3 and only the following services:
xfs, iptables, messagebus, irqbalance, syslog, haldaemon, crond, atd,
anacron, cpuspeed, xinetd.

Exit criteria are mingetty running and system idle.

If you take a look at the log file that produced the image
(http://www.klika.si/ziga/bootchart/bootop.log.rhgbfix.gz):
