    That wouldn't be easy to do. In struct vc_data (data about VC tty device)
    you have vc_top and vc_bottom. Normally vc_top is 0 and vc_bottom is that
    last row on your screen. For the logo we move vc_top down a little bit.
    The problem is after we start minigetty on the various /dev/ttyX as soon
    as you VC switch you reintialize the screen to the standard behavior of
    vc_top = 0 and vc_bottom is the last row. It would take hacks to the upper
    console layer to do that.
    You can write a userland app to do this. There are esc sequence
    that change vc_top. You could even alter minigetty if you want.
