Ok Got your point, so basically it will be resolved once the Plymouth developers find out the correct way to detect loading of drm devices at boot time, right?

Not sure whether this is this is the correct place to discuss this. I am currently on the latest tumbleweed snapshot (20150330) with kernel 3.19.3-1-desktop X86_64 and Gnome 3.16. Since Last few updates, Plymouth themes that display some graphics or animation like the default openSUSE theme etc do not work. Instead the text theme with 3 question marks at the center of screen kicks in.
If I set it to some text based theme like tribar, details etc, it works fine. From the look of the display, it seems there is some problem with Plymouth while switching to the graphical mode. BTW, I am using it on a Thinkpad X240 with Haswell Core i7 4600U, 8 GB RAM and Intel HD4400 graphics.
Can anybody guide me how to resolve this? I am new to openSUSE but I have been a Linux user since 8-9 years, mostly Fedora and little bit of Debian experience as well.
This is likely the same problem as discussed recently on systemd list. Plymouth needs graphic driver loaded and fully initialized to display graphic theme. It does use (indirectly) udevadm settle but it now exits immediately if queue is empty. Which means plymouth can be started too early.
I had this same problem, cleared it up by using YaST-->Boot Loader to recreate all of the boot stuff and splash now plymonth now works as expected. Oh, I had a boot problem after one of the upgrades that forced me to recreate the boot loader stuff, next boot plymonth worked as designed.
