There's a kernel option, "quiet", which disables console messages. It
could be used together with an initramfs image which displays a boot
splash on the framebuffer using a user mode tool. initramfs is loaded
early in the boot process, earlier than initrd. Thus you can get an
early boot splash image and no console messages without patching
