You can cut these down a lot

mount the ext2fs with the check=none option

The second cool approach is a bit naughty but works rather well. Apply
the software suspend patch, boot the machine to steady state, suspend it

into another partition or file

On shutdown you dd the partition back after you swapoff.

Your reboot then finds the hardware, sets it up, finds the magic partition
and springs back into the position it suspended from
