Well, the tip is to make / small, and not worry that it occasionally has to
get checked on boot. if it's ~100-150M, it'll be all over in seconds (like,
3 or 4)

Obviously, I'm implying that the script to touch /fastboot would run just
after the remount rw.

I forgot to mention, it could delete the file too, if it finds you're
running on AC.
