The reason for this is that I took out the delay loops that were in the
gray_bar code.  I did this because I hadn't seen any problems in a looong
time where a reboot kept you from counting the gray_bars.

???  What do you mean?  The standard font size is what used to be the
standard se/30 font size.  If you were using your other monitor as the
boot screen, then, yes, I suppose the newer font size will be smaller.
Lawrence mentioned that he had plans for being able to specify a font
for the dt code.  That'll take an X pcf font, I think.  There are ways
to get such a font from mac fonts...

This is in the latest kernel sources--available from sun-lamp or
mirrors in the directory src/sys/arch/mac68k/dev.
