Oops, I did it again

I didn't mean too, but I did :evil: . A slew of updates targeted for baselayouts trunk made it into the 1.12 branch which I released tonight as pre17. Along with updates to dhcpcd, pump, udhcp and the new resolvconf-gentoo package. Basically if you use this and DHCP then you will need an ~ARCH dhcp client!The good news is that this release works better with udev-089 forcing coldplug removal. Basically we detect coldplug scripts starting before we are ready for them and dynamically add them to the boot runlevel when we're good to go. This actually works very well, much better than coldplug starting them in the background as you have solid visual feedback about why the service was started and if it started successfully or not 😃
