Wow, that's a very simple patch.
If this stuff actually works, done completely from a module point of view, 
then there is no need to use bootsplash at all (complex and ugly code).
I see that the license does say "GPL" I wonder where does Xandros has the code for
that in their site :-) The essence of the GPL license, got it love it... In any case
documentation for how to actually use it would be better, then doing a kernel-patch-*
for Debian couldn't be that hard. Now let's see how to get this to work on 2.6.x...
