Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: initramfs-tools

Version : Lucid
Cause of this behavior : upgrade initramfs-tools from 0.92bubuntu57 to 0.92bubuntu60

On my system (laptop Toshiba U200) there was no disk activity during 5
seconds after the kernel was loaded and then the system booted. With the
upgrade of initramfs-tools there is no disk activity for 30 seconds and
then the system boots. This happen with the new process wait-for-root
that replace the old process sleep. Look at the bootchart for more
