[ipxe-devel] iPXE: Coloring of debug output

Hello Michael,

the colors used by iPXE seem to depend on random addresses:

interface/efi/efi_wrap.c:47:#define colour &efi_systab_wrapper
interface/efi/efi_timer.c:53:#define colour &efi_jiffies
arch/x86/core/runtime.c:84:#define colour &cmdline_image
arch/x86/core/cachedhcp.c:48:#define colour &cached_dhcpack_phys
arch/x86/core/rdtsc_timer.c:57:#define colour &tsc_per_us

The actual colors did not help me to better understand the output.

Wouldn't it be preferable to use the severity of the message for color

Best regards
