plymouth 'details' splash plugin does not support display_message

Created attachment 36984 patch
The 'details' splash plugin (which Plymouth will fall back to in various situations, e.g. on a serial console) does not have a display_message function, and so any message display requests will be silently ignored.
On Ubuntu, messages sometimes include instructions on what key to press to continue boot (e.g. after filesystem mount failure); using the details splash plugin, these instructions are never displayed and the boot process simply appears to hang.
I attach a patch which adds support for message display to the 'details' plugin.
