More small fixes to initscripts. Most importantly, a few errors with
devtmpfs are removed. Please sign off again:

Gerardo Exequiel Pozzi (1):
      Add nodevtmpfs at rc.shutdown when umount

Thomas Bächler (4):
      Do not redirect the standard error of fsck to /dev/null by default
      Rewrite early RTC device creation
      Initialize /etc/mtab by copying /proc/mounts
      network, rc.conf: Add NETWORK_PERSIST option
