I assume this means before rcS.d/S40*. How early can you
reasonably/safely start your firewall? Somewhere after S10checkroot.sh
seems sure. I have iptables scripts slotted at S38. I can't see that
starting any earlier buys any additional security since networking's
not up yet. Am I missing anything?
