Some rework to support user-defined colors in non-menu as well.  This is most
desirable when using the new background image feature implemented by Vesa,
since light-grey may not be properly readable depending on the image you're

Example for bios console, setting up only menu color:

set menu_color_normal=cyan/blue
set menu_color_highlight=white/blue

Example for gfxterm, setting up white foreground to match with loaded image:

insmod video
insmod vbe
insmod gfxterm
insmod tga
font (hd0)/unifont.pff
terminal gfxterm
set color_normal=white/black
set color_highlight=black/white
background_image (hd0)/bg.tga

`color' command is necessary to propagate user setting from environment
variables to the internal color of our current terminal.

Please comment on the design, etc first.  I still have to write a ChangeLog
entry, update the missing *.rmk files, etc.
