Commenting syslog_daemon hangs Bootscript
|Reported by:||bonefish||Owned by:||axeld|

When commenting the line that starts the syslog daemon in the Bootscript, the boot process hangs at the
waitfor _input_server_event_loop_. Also commenting this line causes the boot process still to hang. Inspection with the kernel debugger shows that the init shell is done, but none of the applications are running.
Apparently 1) the app server starts the input server lazily and 2) applications require the app server to be fully initialized before being started. Either the input server is needed for apps to be started -- then it should not be started lazily, but immediately (and the
waitfor could be moved up) -- or another way to wait for the app server initialization should be used.
