Subject[patch] Quiet boot.
Date
From
Hi,

I've created a patch to cause the kernel to boot quietly until init
starts (at which point, it's up to your init scripts to be
quiet). Boot messages still go to syslog.

Usage:

- supply "quiet" to the command line and the kernel will boot quietly.
- the command line "noisy" will revert to normal behavior (if, for example,
your boot is failing and quiet is in your LILO append line).

This patch is against 2.2.6, but should move real easily to other
versions. Anyone have a reason why I shouldn't ask Linus to include
this in the standard kernel?
