Found more issues:
# Provides:          keyboard-setup
# Required-Start:    mountkernfs udev
# Required-Stop:
# X-Start-Before:    checkroot
It is not started before checkroot though! Does that mean X-Start-Before 
is not supported?
In addition, it should probably also have a Should-Start: keymap, so it 
is started after /etc/init.d/ (same issues basically as with 
console-setup <>

Looking more into it: has a Should-Start: keymap, but is started much later than Bug?


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
