I'm not aware of anything. Maybe some framebuffers have boot time
options to disable them, but I don't think boot-floppies has any such
Can I suggest something like the patch below, which would let us boot
with "nolangchooser" to disable bterm and hence language chooser. Might
also help on at least one hppa box where framebuffer code is broken such
that b-f wont boot since I turned on language chooser.
