I would like to request the addition of Plymouth boot splash support in Genkernel. With genkernel-next no longer supported or available on the repo a replacement would be nice. This is also (as far as I can tell) the last major feature from gk-next that gk does not have.
I have coded and tested my own implementation of this and submitted a pull request on the genkernel GitHub page: https://github.com/gentoo/genkernel/pull/29
Please let me know if this is feasible, or if there are any changes I need to make.
has this among a few other features not yet merged back to genkernel.

Saw that my previous patch had merge conflicts, so I resolved those. Patch for current 9999 ebuild in official repos attached.

Thanks for the effort you put in here FlyingWaffle, that's much appreciated. I don't know what the exact status is of this patch, but I have generated one that works for genkernel-4.3.1 for those interested:
