Fast Boot

It would be nice if it was possible to speed up the system boot time, from power on to images on the wire.

I have not looked into this at all, but some ideas:

1) Benchmark current boot process

2) Strip out as much as possible

3) custom kernel

4) custom bootloader

Should be a fairly easy project, at least for the beginning steps.

Somewhere around 1-2 sec would be ideal. --aegdss 17:09:32, 2008-09-05 (CDT)
