Comment(by martin.langhoff):

 See attached: draft patch: load drivers early, settle only wlan, wait for

 This patch cuts first boot time for me from 1:11s to 49s, and
 increases the reliability of hostname setup.

  * Without any changes, I get ~50% success rate.
  * Early driver load and udevadm trigger changes shorten boot time but
 still hit and miss.
  * Adding waitonpath seems to resolve issues, have not seen it fail. The
 debugging echo always reports "10" however so perhaps we're in a very
 tight race with udevadm, one that sleep 0.1 would solve.

 All of this on a short number of runs, with "rm /.olpc-configured
 /home/olpc/.olpc-configured /etc/sysconfig/network" to clear state.
