What information? You should read some documentation about bootloaders
and master boot record. It's not autodetecion, it's support for USB.
Nature of USB is that it scans for devices. It's not that Ubuntu does
that, USB (as a hardware does that), same as SCSI controllers do. USB
support in kernel isn't a thing that makes Ubuntu boot slow. Whole
kernel takes 3-4 seconds. You should really leave kernel alone, since it
is not weakest link in booting. Problem is in SysV.
