How to display a full resolution Linux boot logo

When trying to use your own Linux boot logo (instead of Tux penguin splash) according to Digi ESP instructions to change logo_custom_clut224.ppm, you will notice that higher resolution logos will not be displayed.

In order allow higher or full resolution Linux boot logos, please patch
- fb_prepare_logo(fbi, 0);
- fb_show_logo(fbi, 0);
+ if (pdev->id != 2) { // Ignore for the overlay
+  fb_prepare_logo(fbi, 0);
+  fb_show_logo(fbi, 0);
+ }
  return 0;

The patch only applies to Digi Embedded Linux 5.8 or 5.9.
