Hi Tony,

Please keep the replies on the list as others may find your posts useful
or be able to help.

The full plot svg would still be useful. Ideally post it somewhere and
then include a link.

I'm not sure why dietsplash.service wasn't tracked, but it should really
be shown if it is indeed started by systemd. It can't be "faster than
systemd" if systemd starts it, but if the same functionality of the
dietsplash.service unit is implemented independently in, say, say some
initrd code, then systemd won't track it.

Without seeing the contents of the units and the systemctl status output
for dietsplash.service, it's hard to debug further.

As mentioned above, please keep the replies on list as I am probably at
the end of my useful replies on this topic ;)
