If this is accepted, I suggest adding the following install hook (call
it "timestamp" or something like that) to the systemd package:


build() {
    add_binary /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-timestamp /usr/bin/timestamp

help() {
    cat <<HELPEOF
When booted with systemd this allows systemd-analyze to tell how much time
was spent in the initramfs.
