Hi folks,

I found that the kernel (checked on 2.2.16 and 2.2.17) contains at least
two calls to wait_for_keypress (in drivers/block/rd.c and fs/super.c).
This is very annoying if you're running a server farm that is located in
another building.

I'd propose a configuration option that allows a user to decide whether
the kernel is allowed to wait for "any key". Another solution would be
to provide a timeout.
