Wouldn't all of this more sensibly be done as the first step
after init is spawned as part of the system boot (as opposed to
the kernel boot) ? It would be much more easily addressed there,
would be completely independent of boot loaders, the kernel and
the type of graphics cards installed. Perhaps I'm missing the point.
