Here are the timings (times are in seconds measured on the host) for a
completely black 640x480 jpeg on my machine:

00.135: Checking for bootsplash
00.139: VESA 2.0
00.140: VENDOR: VGABIOS Cirrus extension
00.143: PRODUCT: VGABIOS Cirrus extension
00.145: Copying bootsplash.jpg
00.146: Decoding bootsplash.jpg
00.154: Finding vesa mode with dimensions 640/480
00.160: mode: 0111
00.162: framebuffer: 0xf0000000
00.164: bytes per scanline: 1280
00.165: bits per pixel: 16
00.166: Decompressing bootsplash.jpg
00.283: Switching to graphics mode
00.322: Showing bootsplash.jpg
00.327: Bootsplash copy complete

One can compare this output with the dprintf() calls in the code at:


The times weren't notably different with a real picture instead of
just a black picture.

As before, SeaBIOS should probably be changed so that it only shows
the image if the boot menu has been enabled.
