I think we need more complete bug reports about these kinds of
problems, and fix them, rather than default to showing startup scroll.
I don't have this problem very often and I use rawhide kernels. And
where I run stable kernels I can't even remember the last time I
needed to see the startup scroll for troubleshooting. It's easy to get
it unhidden though - hit Esc.
I agree with your points, but pressing ESC only reverses the "rhgb"
part, the kernel output is still "quiet".
