SubjectWhat's in fastboot.git for 2.6.28
The fastboot.git tree has a set of patches (all posted and reviewed on lkml before)
that speed up the kernel boot process of the kernel.

There's 3 major pieces of this
1) The creation of an asynchronous initcall level (6a) that runs asynchronous from
the regular driver init, and is for non-boot critical initcalls only
2) A rework of the non-initrd boot code to try mounting /, and if that fails,
only THEN wait for all the various driver probings to finish (and then retry)
3) A tool "" that outputs a SVG graphic of where the kernel boot spends
its time

The following changes since commit 9824b8f11373b0df806c135a342da9319ef1d893:
Linus Torvalds (1):
Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://

fastboot: create a "asynchronous" initlevel
fastboot: turn the USB hostcontroller initcalls into async initcalls
fastboot: convert a few non-critical ACPI drivers to async initcalls
fastboot: hold the BKL over the async init call sequence
fastboot: sync the async execution before late_initcall and move level 6s (sync) first
fastboot: make fastboot a config option
modules: extend initcall_debug functionality to the module loader
fastboot: retry mounting the root fs if we can't find init

Add a script to visualize the kernel boot process / time
fastboot: fix issues and improve output of
use the fancy new printk flags to print the function pointer
