The other part of the patch (which is just as important, btw) is that
after X has been started by gdm, it runs plymouth quit --retain-splash.
This means "all is well, now you can quit".

If X fails to start, it runs just plymouth quit; this means "X failed,
please clean up VT7 and restore the text console".

KDM really should be doing the exact same transition.  Jonathan had a
work item which he's marked DONE, I guess it isn't.
