this check during boot. Does no-one read dmesg output any more ?

Its way too long these days. Like "so long it overflows even enlarged
buffer". We should prune these messages down to "one line per hw
device or serious problems only".

especially if you turn on encryption options. I can understand that output being useful for debugging, but there should be a way to not deal with it in the normal case.
