I'd rather work on cleaning up the boot messages so they aren't
so scary -- there's a lot of noise there IMHO. But that part
really only takes a couple of seconds...
If we do a graphical kernel splash, it's got to be as decent code
that stands a good chance of acceptance upstream. As I mentioned
before, that doesn't include grovelling through memory looking for
something that resembles a JPEG file.
