Right now we're running readahead early way too late.
At a time when we've just sat doing no IO at all for 10
seconds whilst (amongst other things) we waited for a
DHCP lease.   We're also running it at a time when
we're competing for disk bandwidth with other processes.
The result is that disabling the service completely shows
no change in boot time at all.

Moving the readahead_early service to start really early
wins back 4 seconds of boot up time.

Any reason not to change this for F8 ?

Note in the 'after' png that there's now a segment
of no IO occuring between 31s and 33s. Maybe moving
the later readahead service slightly earlier will provide
additional wins.
