Is it really necessary to have *that much* assembly code within hw/ pc.c?

I would rather see multiboot support as a small image generated from
C and/or assembly code, loaded either with -hda or with a new option

variables it needs.

Better yet to package it as an option ROM and eliminate all the boot sector hacks.

Better yet to package all kernel loading hacks in your option ROM and eliminate the bootsector hacks. Mind to do it? ;-).
