The idea isn't to use bootsplash because bootsplash is not at all
upstream and basically has zero chance of getting there.  Instead, work
is underway so that the kernel can do native modesetting for various
graphics chipsets.  Then we'll just go the same mode and avoid the mode
switch and corresponding monitor flash.
