Maybe I'm missing something, but doesn't the Linux initrd facility
handle this?  Couldn't you put your startup stuff in an initrd image
and create your startup script as /linuxrc in the initrd?  I thought
that this kind of thing was the point of the initrd, but I've never
played with it enough to see if it can do what you need above...
