Bootsplash and 2.4.22 Kernel

Now that the 2.4.22 kernel is going to make its way into Arch, I was wondering if there will be an updated bootsplash to deal with this.

the latest official bootsplash patch is only for 2.4.20, so I assume Gyroplast will have to update his patch and How-To.

Another possibility, could bootsplash be included in the default kernel, it adds very little size to the kernel.

Thanks.

PS. I know bootsplash is very non-l33t, but It makes the console look nicer.

FYI:

the bootsplash-patch from gyroplast works also with the 2.4.22, the output from patching is this:

for the perfectionists: who want, can addapt the line-numbers in the patch, so that the output looks nicer :-) ... for the others: enjoy nice pictures while booting :-)

Re: Bootsplash and 2.4.22 Kernel

i tried installing bootsplash, but when i try modprobing radeonfb i get some unresolved symbols. radeonfb works fine before i use the patch though. i have an ATI Radeon mobility 7500 and a snapshot driver asa module.
