Any chance SeaBIOS could emit a short chirp when it receives the ESC to boot menu request? That would solve the "hammering blindly at the keys" problem while the video is initialising, at least on systems with a PC speaker/buzzer still installed.
Sure. You can send a patch and I'll review it.
I was merely offering a suggestion for UX design,
The only coreboot-compatible board I have (and by extension SeaBIOS-compatible) does not properly initialize the PC speaker until some time after Linux starts, so I am currently unable to produce/test such a patch; normally I'd be happy to send something in.
