Oh... I didn't mean I could help with this problem, using the log file.
I'm not that familiar with grub in the first place, and I don't really
have the time for this right now. I just mentioned the options because I
wasn't sure what was blocking your attempt to get the debug log from
OVMF. I assumed that if you had the log, you'd know what to look for.

The debug mask can only enable debug messages that already exist in the
code. If there's some kind of crash and you'd like to track the way
there closely, you'll probably have to add a bunch of DEBUGs yourself,
to the network drivers in edk2.
