With the advice from Roland this may work as a replacement for the
closed tail. In my setup using gnu tail as a replacement was causing
boot-archive corruption. (Doesn't have -r or something) I've not
tested throughly, but I'm optimistic this script will work. I'll be
including a solution in our our next release, but maybe someone can push
this into onnv-gate once it's tested a bit more?
