There are several other possibilities:
- Move the user creation. It is necessary for uuid-runtime (uuidd), not
- Drop e2fsprogs from essential. The only critical part, aka non ext2/3
  specific, it provides is /sbin/fsck IMHO.

What is the reason for this deamon anyway? It linearises the requests
and limits the amount of available uuids.
