I can confirm this (bootin shr-unstable from SD)

root at om-gta02 /proc $ cat /proc/cmdline
loglevel=4 console=tty0 console=ttySAC2,115200 init=/sbin/init ro
g_ether.host_addr=00:1F:11:01:08:11  root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootdelay=1
loglevel=1 quiet splash

it doesn't seem to make sense passing loglevel twice

as a result, my splash screen is disturbed by a blinking cursor
