This proof-of-concept patch adds a simple progress bar to plymouth's
The progress bar uses an estimate of boot time - defaulting to 45
seconds if unknown - and runs from 0% to 100% over that interval.
Furthermore, the patch measures how long it takes to boot and writes
that value to /etc/boottime at plugin shutdown.
Better be somewhere under /var. It's not a config option after all.
Using 'timebar:2' modifies the percentage calculation to use
exponential function - this makes the bar run faster at first, then slow
as it approaches 100%. This makes startup seem even faster. Seriously!
Awesome. Humans are so gullible.
