I see, thanks. I was thinking that perhaps I missed something and 
prelink in not that useful or something. Should I bother to create 
bugzilla entry for this?

Also there are other issues with the firmware. It looks like 
/var/run/wtmp growing problem is back (was in some n770 firmware but was 
solved if I remember correctly). On n800 it is even created again if 
deleted so I had to make softlink to /dev/null. Anyone else see this 
too? I'm not sure if it is caused by something I installed. This should 
go to bugzilla, right?

Another thing is getty running on /dev/ttyS0, I think I removed it from 
inittab and it appeared again. R&D mode is disabled. Does this cause 
higher power consumption or is harmless?
