[Gentoo] Back to X “boot” speedup

Remember that craze a couple of months ago about speeding up boot times, that bootchart program, etc?

Well, I finally started hobbling along in the bandwagon’s dust. Dropped my time to GDM login from 1:07 to 0:42 after hitting Enter on the GRUB screen, a 37% reduction, with the help of a few patches. Most of them are integrated into the latest baselayout alpha’s, and I’ll commit the XDM change soon if I hear success reports from other *dm’s.
