Subject: [PATCH] status: color in-progress message like other header messages

The "status" command recently learned to describe the
in-progress operation in its long output format (e.g.,
rebasing, am, etc). This message gets its own slot in the
color table, even though it is not configurable. As a
result, if the user has set color.status.header to a
non-default value, this message will not match (and cannot
be made to match, as there is no config option).

It is probably more sane to just color it like the rest of
the text (i.e., just use color.status.header). This would
not allow users to customize the color of this message
independently, but it is not likely that anyone will want to
(and they cannot with the current code, anyway).
