Either that, or redo things so fbcon.c is built as a module as long as
none of the frame buffers that depend on it are built-in.

fbcon.c built-in --> frame buffer present at boot time --> show the logo
(and set a flag indicating the logo has been shown so loading a modular
frame buffer later on doesn't screw the pooch).
