I have a Raspberry Pi Zero W running Raspian Stretch. When it boots, it prints grey and yellow square characters to the serial console before displaying "Last login ..." and the login prompt. I already have the loglevel set to zero. I still want getty, just no kernel messages or squares.

The squares that print out:The square that print cmdline.txt
