It is available. And you might even be using it. There are several available
plugins for plymouth. I have my system set so I get to see all of the
messages during boot. The main thing I notice is change in the resolution
when KMS kicks in. That may not be obvious in your case.
You might try installing some of the plymouth plugins and see if that
changes what happens during the boot. There may be some kernel options
that affect things as well.
