Hmm, I'd like to not do that. Splash screen from Linux usually means
that I need an initrd. And an initrd is seldom needed on an embedded
device (i.e. no complicated RAID or DM setup). And it just slows down
the overall boot ...

But thanks for the info anyway.

Oh, one more question: do you have any idea if a simplefb would be
fast enought for X11 ?
