On second thought: it might be even better to (besides the original proposal)
to also make these printfs DEBUG only - the short summary is displayed (or
can optionally be displayed) by the callers - the sparc64 ofwboot
for example does this:

Trying BOOTP protocol...
{libsa messages in question here}
ip address: xxxxxxx, hostname: xxxxx, netmask: xxxxx, gateway: xxxxx

So, how about changing those printfs into DPRINTF?
