/home can be accessed earlier, on my ubuntu home box I've got personal
crontab entries of the form
@daily $HOME/bin/cron-daily
@reboot $HOME/bin/cron-reboot

These are run daily and on reboot.  With zfs /home I can confirm that home
is mounted early enough that these all work as expected.

(not yet willing to upgrade ubuntu from 14.10 to 15.04 as I'm not sure yet
whether the zfs installation will break, info here is inconclusive)
