I think so. There was just some minor things I was going to fix when I 
merged it . For exmaples the timer values are not picked up right away 
so they need to be attr deffered.

I am not going to merge it for the next release (the one that is in rc 
now), because some apps (installers and mkinitrd type of tools) are not 
ready for the -f flag and it is too late to change them.

So I will do a branch for the next release or merge this first when I 
make the new release. I was just waiting to see if Hannes fixes the 
Makefile patch he had.
