enable a few different types of encryption and you have to enlarge the
buffer (by quite a bit). the fact that all the encryption tests print
several lines each out and can't be turned off (short of a quiet boot
where you loose everything) is one of the more annoying things to me right
now.

this large boot message issue also slows your boot significantly if you
have a fast box that has a serial console, it takes a long time to dump
all that info out the serial port.
