Bug Description

subiquity should have flicker-less boot, which means that we should disable blinking cursor on boot.

We possibly want to change the bootsplash, if the installer defaults to black background, we should have a black bootsplash with white ubuntu text logo and orange circle of friends, rather than purple background.

This is a side-effect of the comparatively little work that was put in livecd-rootfs to make this work. We should use the graphical splash from plymouth and make sure snapd happens earlier if possible, or handling plymouth stopping differently, and that will remove the cursor.

At that point at boot time, the system is basically just waiting for snapd to be ready and seed itself, extract subiqity and start it.
