It could.  Filesystem mounting is a chokepoint, so it has to affect how
dependencies are handled somehow, and this should affect speed on
parallel-booting schemes.

The question is whether it helps or hinders, and how to best deal with it
supposing we will have a more event-driven userland in the future.  But
*these* questions may be out of the scope of the SoC boot project.
