Is console-setup the thing which initialises the console fonts and
resolution? Is its slowness the reason why, on boot, it takes a few
seconds for the text-mode screen to transition to a virtual terminal,
which then has its font changed a few seconds later to the more
readable Debian default?

Why is console-setup so slow?
