I think it is the output of printf statement
from line 287 that is missing. (As far as I could read the commit.)

Thing I like to known is how old the "VirtualBox" is.
The screenshot says "Oracle VM VirtualBox",
wikipedia says that Oracle did acquire Sun in Januari 2010.

So please do share with us
the origin of the iPXE version that is being used.
