To me, it seens like a patch error, try adding to .config a line like this:
just before CONFIG_SOUND=y on my .config
I use bootsplash here, my kernel is a 2.6.11, using the ck patchs and
aditional bootsplash, that I got from a kernel forum (sorry, but I dont
remember which forum it was). On www.bootsplash.org you find patchs for older
versions. Try google to find some issue, also if you want, I can send you the
patch I used for my 2.6.11.

Here, I also dont know, but every time I add support for nVidia framebuffer,
I cannot get bootsplash or framebuffers at all. Dont know why, but I think
its true. Well, my card is a old TNT2 that support VESA framebuffer, so it
works without problems...
Hope this helped a little.
