Hmmm... it would be neat if we can make that work. However, I'm not
sure it would. If I understand correctly, minilogd will buffer all
messages to /dev/log until syslog-ng is started, and then minilogd
will push it's log into the normal syslog.

However, if we have a minilogd instance in initramfs I guess we would
have to kill it before starting init, so it will not be able to pass
on its messages. Or am I wrong? I really don't know the details of how
this is supposed to work.
