#380: Load non-essential modules later
 Reporter:  gcooper    |       Type:  System Enhancement
   Status:  new        |   Priority:  minor
Milestone:  9.0        |  Component:  Misc
  Version:  9.0-BETA1  |   Keywords:
 Loading modules in FreeBSD via loader(8) is extremely slow. One of the
 lesser noted features in 9.x was a minor infrastructure piece introduced
 by dougb@ where non-essential modules (i.e. not required for system boot
 in mountroot) could be loaded after mountroot was loaded.

 This patch moves all non-essential (network/non-essential device drivers,
 non-critical filesystems, and non-essential system call) modules from
 /boot/loader.conf in to /etc/rc.conf .
