Martin, The only proper way to print UEFI Boot Services Driver version and legacy x86 OpROM version is to upload those image headers from flash and retrieve the version, various generation of the controllers have various type of image headers hence a good amount of code needs to be added to the driver to display them properly and associated feature maintenance, so we thought it is better to push that to applications space, if you think the added code is worth the value it provides, we can add it in the future, we would prefer to remove the current way of showing a version in that message.
