This patch seems nice, I'm in favor of loading all of the available

Maybe it would be possible to use your method when splash screen is
disabled, and do things sequentially when it's enabled? That could
solve the problem.

Also, is there any potential of race condition (one component depending
on another being already started) like with /etc/init.d, or are the
various components standalone?
