I tested your patch with the same hardware as in my previous reply
(Amiga 1200, 68030/40MHz, 64MB).

Now (with the patch applied) the multiuser boot takes exactly 4:00 minutes.
It was 8:44 minutes before.

I think this is acceptable. The remaining 15 seconds are probably lost
through the nop-pinger code in /etc/rc.
