I just checked and quiet is not missing. As for the patches adding that output, I highly
doubt it since none of them has an output and they're quite simple, they adjust a few
things in some drivers, nothing major. Besides, the messages are displayed before
"Welcome to Fedora init", if the problem was with the patches, shouldn't the
messages come up after that?

It's an F11 kernel + my patches. I obtained the SRPM from koji,
added a couple of patches, and modified the config file to suit my hardware.
Either got quiet missing or some of the patches add output that doesn't

the custom kernel, some text is displayed before the loading screen starts up (the kernel
finishes loading without problems). I'm trying to figure out the reason for this and
if there's a way to fix it so that the user doesn't see this text. Could the
reason be the order in which different parts of the kernel are loaded? If yes, how can I
control which parts load first?
Is your 'custom kernel' an F11 kernel + your patches, or starting from
an upstream tarball + your patches? (In which case, its lacking all the
patches Fedora has added, and therein probably lies your answer to why
things are behaving differently).
