If so, which > terminal are you using? That's probably very relevant... Probably so... kernel VT with i915 + fbcon. Now that I think back, I think real textmode was significantly faster. By the way, this is the same reason "quiet" speeds up boot (my testing showed ~ 2-3 seconds difference in kernel boot, out of ~8 seconds without quiet...) I've noticed similar effects with Xterm & urxvt, though ISTR that urxvt can be sped up with asynchronous text output (I forget the option, though).
