Well, part of the problem is that "my" fixed lists may not be everyone's
fixed lists - I generated a custom list from *my* boot sequence.  Coming
up with a good default list that actually speeds *everyone's* boot time
is another issue.  If we think it's worth the 4 second or so boottime
reduction, maybe some way to automatically generate the custom lists
during firstboot might be an option.  But then, they will rot over time...

I'm also testing the SuSE hack of telling glibc to readahead shared
libraries...
