Typical boot and cursor in console

If you have Netwalker and have you tried to switch to console (for example by pressing ctrl+alt+f1), you probably noticed that there is no cursor. Well friends, it's not bug, it's feature. This part of code in drivers/video/mxc/mxc_ipuv3_fb.c is self-explanatory...

static int dmy_cursor(struct fb_info *info, struct fb_cursor *cursor)
* don't display cursor for slash image.
return 0;
#endif /* CONFIG_MACH_MX51_ERDOS */

Let's have cursor back with this patch. Well, with this you'll get cursor back, but what about removing SHARP logo? This one should give you typical Linux Tux logo instead. And for completely usual linux boot sequence we all love so much. To get all that informations running in startup, all errors and messages disable in kernel config System Type --> Freescale MXC Implementations --> MX51 Options --> printk suppress less KERN_ERR.

Good night!
