 I think it is a good idea for most users.  I personally will not use
 tmpfs.  I actually use the bootscript output in a job, but I'm probably a
 very strange exception.  Also, make sure that utmp is created if it
 doesn't exist...something from the depinit maintainer's notes.  Probably
 doesn't affect us, but I'm not sure.

 This still doesn't fix #2160 (but I think Dan's proposed patch does, I
 just haven't used the main scripts in a long time), and Gerrard mentioned
 moving setclock up in the order in another part of the thread on LFS-Dev.
 setclock should still be moved if for nothing other than better logging
 IMO.
