It is not.  It will likely hang the box during boot as stuff wait for udev
to create nodes that never show up.

I don't know if it will eventually timeout, but if it will, it will take a
_long_ time.

For some reason or another, we don't always have SIGINT (^C) and SIGQUIT
(^\) working properly on the console during early boot (when using sysvinit,
I don't know about upstart).  This is a long-standing issue, which I don't
have the time to track down.  If anyone would like to do it, it would be
really helpful.
