In the fedora chart there seem to be a huge time (form sec 2.5, to sec
15) where the only things running are polymouthd and nash-hotplug, then
another gap when udev starts, then everything start booting more or less
in parallel.

In moblin there is no plymouthd/nash-hotplug and udev seem not to
introduce delays.
What are plymouthd/nash-hotplug doing ? (if its their fault)
Why fedora's udev seem to slow down another bit while moblin's udev seem
not ?

Simo.
