I think he is saying that bootsplash shouldn't even require a kernel
module to begin with so should be rewritten to properly make use of
fbcon, hence "the same thing can be done in userspace" comment. When
something can be done in userspace just as well as in kernelspace it
should be done in userspace. If there are things bootsplace needs to do
that can't be done in userspace or with fbcon then speak up...
