Re: Faster shutdown and the ubuntu "multiuser" update-rc.d extention

Obviously removing those scripts should have no impact on the other
Exactly, (unless there is a dependency relation between two scripts
and one of them is removed from the shutdown sequence. :).
Ok. Good catch. So it seems to me that any service that is not a shutdown
prerquisite of annother service (a.k.a must be shut down first) and which
can be cleanly shutdown with [SIGTERM; pause; SIGKILL] is a good candidate
for removing the shutdown init script.
Any service that is a shutdown prerequisite, or has a more complicated clean
shutdown procedure should remain using the initscript system for shutting
Those could still benefit from a parallelized initsystem, but that is beyond
the scope of current discussion.
