I can't name off a specific kernel version, but I know that other distros 
(notably openSUSE and Mandriva) perform graphical boot using stuff directly 
in the kernel instead of a separate program.  

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/SuSE+10.2+Lizard+Bootsplash?content=53507 - 
This is the one I used to use.  It uses mkinitrd to load the images 
somehow...

A few seconds later:  Okay, I found the site for it.  The patch isn't part of 
the official kernel, so I was incorrect when I said it was.  Though I still 
imagine it'd be faster and easier to use the kernel itself to do graphical 
boot than to use a separate program to do so.

Anyway, the site is here:  http://www.bootsplash.org/
