I am writing some code to address the raw framebuffer and would like to suppress all writing to the display including anything at boot. I have tried to use abootit to set the kernel parameters to suppress screen output, e.g. console=null, nosplash and so on, but I end up with an infinite reboot cycle and have to restore the 8 MB boot partition every time. What is the proper way to ensure that nothing writes to the display except for what I directly specify?
