get rid of console messages!

ok 2 things.

1. uboot env needs to get rid of "console=tty0" from any boot parames
preferably something like:

  bootargs_base=console=ttySAC2,115200 loglevel=8

that's it. 

2. initscripts provides:

  initscripts - 1.0-r105 - /etc/init.d/banner

this is used in rcS.d:


which annoyingly displays some useful text on the console tty to the effect of:

  echo "Please wait: booting..." > $vtmaster

no thanks!  :) need our consoles blissfully clear of any text spewing forth
from the kernel and init scripts. :) boot speeds up - and things stay clean.
this way only the bootsplash (psplash or exquisite) play with your display on
boot until x gets its bum into gear and then its x apps from there on in.
