Setup console under usplash

Registered by Scott James Remnant (Canonical) on 2006-10-06

When starting the graphical display manager, we have to tell usplash to exit and reset the console to text mode so we can set up things such as the font and keymap.

This should not be necessary, the setupcon call in the main boot sequence should just work, even if usplash is running.

Then usplash can be terminated automatically when X flips the VT.

Whiteboard

This does not need discussion; the fix is trivial (remove some safety catches following a bug-fix near the end of the Edgy cycle) and will be done as soon as Feisty is open for business.
2006-11-30 kamion: This is probably done now, but needs to be tested.
2007-01-29 kamion: initramfs alternative implemented.
