+Framebuffer splash screen
+barebox supports BMP and PNG graphics using the :ref:`command_splash` command. barebox
currently has no support for backlights, so unless there is a board specific enable
hook for enabling a display it must be done manually with a script. Since barebox
has nothing useful to show on the framebuffer it doesn't enable it during startup.
