Fedora's implementation of readahead to preload boot process files

"readahead" is the term used to refer to a tool that preloads files in this case used during the boot process to make the system boot faster.

This implementation of the tool provides the following features:

 * It can take multiple lists of files to be preloaded, and sort them
   according to their position on the disk.
 * It preloads the inode tables on ext2-based file systems.
 * It opens the files without making the system update their access
   time, therefore avoiding extra disk writes.
 * It uses a lightweight monitoring daemon.
