Isn't the real reason because ubuntu's policy is not to take any
patches on the kernel which are not accepted upstream (fedora also has
this policy thats why they made rhgb... but thats out of the question
as it takes about 20 seconds till it starts as it loads x....) and to
my memory bootsplash is rejected as it doesn't work on many gfx
