This update for linuxrc fixes the following issues:

- Move plymouthd start after screen size detection. (bsc#1163115)
plymouthd is now started after the screen size detection for avoiding
race conditions with linuxrc. This is because the screen size detection
might potentially interfere with plymouthd as both linuxrc and plymouthd
might try to read from the same serial line.

- Iterate through the device list in sorted order. (bsc#1058039) When
searching for the installation repository, linuxrc iterates through
available local or network devices. As the devices were used in the
order they appeared in sysfs, it was more or less random.

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15-SP1:Update update project.
