Subject[PATCH 4/16] vt-printk-color.diff

Colored kernel message output

Gives kernel messages on the console an OpenBSD-esque color to distinguish
them from regular tty (as long as that's not colored too) text.

Inspired by cko (iirc http://freshmeat.net/p/cko/), but better
implementation done by myself (handles newlines correctly).

+ ---help---
+ This option will give you ability to change the color of
+ kernel messages.
+
+ The value you need to enter here is the ASCII color value
+ composed (OR'ed) by one foreground color, one background
+ color and any number of attributes as follows:
+
+ Foreground: Background: Attributes:
+ 0x01 blue 0x10 blue 0x08 highlight foreground
+ 0x02 green 0x20 green 0x80 blinking foreground
+ 0x03 cyan 0x30 cyan
+ 0x04 red 0x40 red
+ 0x05 magenta 0x50 red
+ 0x06 brown 0x60 brown
+ 0x07 gray 0x70 gray
+
+ Thus, 0x17 will yield gray-on-blue like you can see in
+ OpenBSD, 0x02 the green-on-black like on NetBSD.
+ Using "highlight foreground" does not work when you use
+ VGA Console and fonts with 512 glyphs.
+ VGA Framebuffer is not affected.
