  There's no need for such a thing when your services are managed via
s6-rc. The machine state you want is encoded in your service database,
and your stage 2 init runs s6-rc with the correct arguments to bring
the machine state to the one you want. Through reboots, the same state
is enforced as long as the default service database doesn't change.

  I really recommend that you read the s6-rc documentation if you want to
understand how it works.
