I agree. I am already testing a patch which does exactly that. I should
have it ready for review either later today or tomorrow.

On the plus side, it shows several additional early messages on the
serial console, including the linux version and the command line.

On the downside, I removed the "Kernel alive" message. I don't think
that really makes a difference, though, since I do not see how
console_loglevel can be 10 or higher by the time the message is supposed
to be generated.
