What's the goal here? Printing a bitmap in hex is just gibberish, people
would always have to count the bits etc to get anything useful
information out from that print.

I would prefer the messages in more readable format. For example, if
idea is to show if cryptmode is enabled or not can't we just directly
print that like with format "cryptmode %d"?
