Re: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4] Add optionrom compatible with fw_cfg DMA version

My notes on this patch:
* It applies and compiles fine with current qemu on Linux/x86_64 host.
However after building I had to do:
cp pc-bios/optionrom/linuxboot_dma.bin pc-bios/
I wasn't sure if that was supposed to be done automatically.
* It reduces libguestfs appliance boot time by about ½ second
(2.00 s -> 1.53 s), so that's excellent.
* Overhead of BIOS-to-kernel drops from nearly 50% to under 20% of the
total libguestfs appliance boot time. SeaBIOS is still using 0.27
seconds, of which at least 0.12 seconds is PCI bus scanning.
Anyway, all in all, a good change!
