Makes sense, of course.

No. The difference is that I wasn't using rtcsync (like Peter) but the
rtcautotrim/rtcfile stuff. That initialization also seems to cause an
additional slowdown.

I've now removed initstepslew in favor of makestep - should accomplish
mostly the same thing, i.e. a basic sanity check in case the RTC went
bonkers - and use rtcsync instead of rtcfile. Now the init script starts
immediately without using external --background forking.
This also has the added benefit of properly announcing any configuration
or other startup errors to the init system.

All this is not terribly relevant *for me* since my HW clock is relatively
sane and I'm connected to a Stratum-1 source with ridiculous precision
and constant path latency. It was more to figure out a good path forward
for the packaged init script.
