Trying to reduce boot time for weston and logo from weston

Hello All,

We are working with the i.MX8 platform. We are working with weston and DRM
backend. Below are the version details.

NXP BSP Version: 4.14.98_2.0.0_ga
SC Firmware Version : 1.3.1
wayland version 1.16 am
weston- ivi - 5.0.0

Our requirement is to display the first screen in 2 Seconds.

In the current environment we are able to see the first screen in the 6th

We tried to boot the weston in initramfs. But due to size constraints we
are not able to. Size comes around 65MB.

Is there any possibility for reducing the size of weston?

Weston taking 500ms to complete the initialization. Can we reduce this
timing? e.g if we block unwanted device probing etc, any idea?

In case if we use separate drm based rendering application for the first
screen and switching to weston are seeing blank. Instead of clearing the
weston screen buffer can we have a logo on first rendering. so that blank
can be avoided between the first drm application to weston rendering.

Thanks in advance,
Arunkumar R
