Why that? (I'm not really aware what your changes intended, so you need
to give me an hint.)

I also see a couple more issues left where I would at least like to see an
comment (as I'm currently not sure what there impact is):
 #391673: initscripts: TMPFS_MTPTS in umountfs must be ordered (one line patch)
 #391914: do not remove /etc/nologin
 #392861: sysv-rc: Reboot fails with "exited outside the expected code flow"
 #397900: erroneous runlevel during boot-up sequence
