So after a bit of hacking on 2, we've come to the conclusion that 1
isn't really necessary.

It looks really good to just keep 2 up until gdm would normally start.
 We don't need to start it earlier in the boot process.

A lot of the bits are in rawhide now, but the graphical bits won't be
really testable until the drm modesetting drivers get added back to
