loader: improve boot options for kmdb and framebuffer
I seem to be spending quite a lot of time talking people through dropping to the loader prompt and configuring
nmi=kmdb so that it is possible to drop into kmdb by sending an NMI. Similarly with the framebuffer I've had to talk people through dropping back to the old plain VGA console mode.
The loader boot option screen could be improved to make these things easier.

I build, published and installed the Change,
and i really like it!
On my system tthe framebuffer variant is very slow (4k uhd display with nvidia quadro M1200 gpu),
and the non-fb VGA variant is fast as it was in the 90ties ;-)
