rcorder /etc/rc.d and initdiskless

At the moment on a diskless machine /etc/rc determines the order of
/etc/rc.d/* before /etc/rc.d/initdiskless is run, so you can't use
initdiskless to add files to /etc/rc.d/ when it populates /etc and
expect them to be used during startup.

I have a few diskless machines and thought of adding specific
startup scripts to specific machines in their /conf/<ip>/etc/rc.d/
directories. :-) It does get put in their /etc/rc.d/ directories,
but it isn't excecuted at starup.

Have anybody got a workaround for this?
