the colormap flashing is a known problem, it has to do with how the
console is initialized. i'm not sure why you didn't see it with
2.2.17idepci, i've seen with every compact/idepci kernel i've built.

if this can be turned off without a patch, go ahead. i thought the logo
is included automatically if you have fb support turned on.

2.2.19 is out and packaged, can you look into packaging that? i'm going
to be moving fairly soon so i probably won't be able to get to this for
a couple of weeks at least.
