sshd is started as soon as all filesystems are mounted, which I can tell
you is considerably earlier than it used to be started!  I'm not going
to change it for precise now, but it'd probably be possible to start it
as soon as all *local* filesystems are mounted.  Feel free to file a bug
about that.
