Yeah, I noticed this myself already. Quite a bit of syslog output
ended up in /proc/kmsg during boot because rsyslog was started rather
late (via multi-user.target).
Afaics, there is not explicit symlink pulling in syslog.target, so I
assume it is handled internally by systemd. Lennart?

That said, I agree that rsyslog.service should be pulled in via
syslog.target.wants and not multi-user.target.wants.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
