I agree that the kernel default is annoying, but it _is_ the upstream
default, and there is a known workaround (boot with "quiet"), so I
don't want to keep hacking around this in initscripts.

Luckily, my stubbornness prompted Dave to do the right thing, and
submit a kernel patch to allow the default to be set to something
sensible at compile-time: <https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/7/26/227>.
Hopefully this means that the problem will be solved upstream soon.
