[systemd-devel] removal of RD_TIMESTAMP support in initrd

With systemd 206 near release, I'd like to understand if commit
c72aadd1851096ea is going to stand. This commit removes support for
reading RD_TIMESTAMP in the initramfs, and thus makes systemd mandatory
for measuring initramfs runtime.

If this is the intended future, please help me to understand the
rationale behind removing 25 lines of code for a useful feature -- one
which has extremely low overhead and is self contained code-wise.

I strongly object to the way this was done and would appreciate a more
"official" explanation.
