This is v2 of the changes submitted by Ben Shelton on August 4. I've reworked the
patches quite a bit, larger changes include:

- All non-udev-cache-related patches have been omitted. I'll submit those
- Use `find` to build `tar` filelist. This eliminates the need for GNU- and
  busybox-specific tar options.
- No new settings have been added to udev-cache.default in order to preserve
  compatibility with older overrides of udev-cache.default. Note, this means a
  lot of new settings are duplicated between initscripts.
- System config is now generated immediately before the tarball is generated,
  and is manipulated at the file level instead of the shell variable level.
- Internal/corporate commit message fields stripped.
- Spurious whitespace changes should all be fixed.

There is one requested fix I'm pushing back on: Copying both $CMP_FILE_LIST and
/dev to tmpfs in a single operation to minimize race conditions. For a variety
of reasons, I abandoned trying to make this work in a single command. Instead
it's done in two: grabbing the system configuration (i.e reading /proc files and
udev rules) is done first, then /dev is archived as an uncompressed tarball.
Notably, using tar instead of cp means that I can use `find -xdev` and `find
-type` to eliminate a lot of other complexity. I think this approach will wind
up being faster than the straight-up copy approach, although I have not made any
attempt to confirm that.

The following changes since commit 47d1fc9f5c38f3d092937c47bd4c2f45adaa7fe6:

  qemu: fix Darwin cross-compilation (2014-08-18 20:43:24 +0100)
