That's correct as I understand it. Qi doesn't understand jffs2 so it can't 
read the usual file where the extra options would live. You should be able to 
drop the loglevel at runtime using:
	dmesg -n 4
This sets the console log level to warnings and above. It won't help with the 
boot time, but does a lot for the resume time.
