I was thinking on patching & recompiling the kernel module associated to
the console...

But on second thought, you may better try with "screen" (if you are not
using it already). Just adding the following line to the .screenrc file did
the trick for me:

    attrcolor b "-b"

You can even replace the bold with underline, for extra fun, using instead:

    attrcolor b "=u"

Screen has so many posibilities!
