Thank you.  This was very interesting.  I am surprised the startpar
option didn't have more effect on the boot speed.  I expected it to at
least increase the disk throughput.  Looking at the graphs, I suspect
some readahead program started early in the boot could decrease the
amount of IO wait during boot.

I will need to analyze it a bit more to try to understand why your
boot is so slow.
