Or maybe there will be a simpler solution if you look at the following
code in /bin/setupcon and provide the required patch. :)
pidof splashy > /dev/null \

I suppose one additional pidof check will be enough.
I don't know how plymmouth is working but if/when it exits and the
console is again in text mode if you want you can make the script of
plymouth to run 'setupcon' (with no arguments) to make sure the console
is configured. Ideally the same should be done in case some errors case
the console to go to text mode.
Notice that if console-setup is not installed then kbd will attempt to
configure the console so the same problem will occur.
