Dave explained to me on IRC that the loglevel=[1-8] or quiet options
can be passed to the kernel to control this.

It would make sense to default to, say, loglevel=4 (that's what quiet
sets) if no verbosity-related options are passed to the kernel.

Another possible issue:

$ runlevel

On another machine without the initscripts package from [testing] the
output differs:

$ runlevel
N 5
