Nothing from your description sounds like it should cause a problem. I recommend increasing the SeaBIOS debug level to 8 and posting the full log.
Thanks for your help and consideration.
The full log is attached.
Interactively I pressed the <ESC> key to enter the SeaBIOS menu and then I selected boot device 5 "Payload [LINUX]". After that the system reboots.
Unfortunately, I don't see anything in the log that looks suspicious. Since you are using qemu/kvm, you could try attaching a debugger (if you are familiar with gdb).
There's documentation online and in the SeaBIOS' README file. In a nutshell, run qemu with "-s -S" and then run "gdb" in another terminal and send it "target remote localhost:1234" along with something like "br *0x40000" to set a break point at the start of the payload.
Another option would be to try with a known working payload and verify if you can get SeaBIOS to launch it.
