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?
