Though there seem to be multiple issues, one where logo re-appears after 
disappearing and prevents using the mouse on the lower part of the 
screen (which I believe is solved by the patch) and another where it 
appears at boot despite kern.vt.splash_cpu=0 being set (which is 
default). Sounds like you're hitting the later.
