    Update - the above numbers were with an older version and with the cache
    partition located at the very end of the drive (hence being a lot slower
    than the root partition at the front). The fcache boot takes 33 seconds
    now, from the kernel starts loading to the kde login has finished.
    Probably 5 seconds of that time is device probe and network setup (dunno
    why the latter is still sleeping so much, I disabled dhcp for this test
    to avoid waits (for both fcache and normal boot, of course)).
