This patch seems to load a small diagram in text mode just before
the kernel really gets going (and the patch as posted is malformed
in that it has extra line feeds ..).

I like it because it is so localized a change, code-wise. But I
thought the idea was to hide all the kernel messages .. I guess that
means I have to read the BootPrompt HOWTO again and find out how to
turn them off, or redirect them to a second screen while we watch the
penguin .... debug=0 ?
