SubjectRe: Proposal: driver initialization pipelining

Give up on IDE, it is too broken.

You should get away with paralelising USB and SCSI scan.

Perhaps you can speed boot up with initrd+modules, possibly improving module
inits (but they are probably good enough). With modules, I can imagine
USB+SCSI scans running in paralel.
