Re: [edk2-platforms][PATCH V1 1/1] WhitleyOpenBoardPkg/Build: Reduce debug output for default boot.

Oram, Isaac W

It is a noticeable impact on performance. At some point we need to build out more optimal options for DEBUG and RELEASE but the server code isn't really built that way currently as very often people want the logs all the time and choose verbosity over the infrequent boot performance impact. A lot of the code could be productively refactored to leverage message levels towards common debug scenarios. For now, I just want to reduce the volume of output to a good default level that indicates the system is progressing through boot and let people customize the level for their debug activity.

Is it a big increase in messages to have both INFO and LOAD?

Replace Info with Load, so we still get component loading details
