In PIIX4 SCI (irq9) is active high. Seabios marks it so in interrupt override table, but some OSes (FreeBSD) require the same information to be present in DSDT too. Make it so.

How do we manage the stable series wrt this issue?
qemu-kvm-0.12.5 has a regression within the stable series that this patch fixes. qemu 0.12.5 does not, but only because it does not emulate polarity in the I/O APIC correctly.
There are several paths we could take:
- do nothing, bug is fixed in mainline - release a seabios 0.x.1 for qemu 0.13.1 with this patch - same, plus seabios 0.y.1 for qemu 0.12.6 with this patch - skip qemu (which is not truly affected), patch qemu-kvm's copy of seabios for both 0.12.z and 0.13.z
The third option is the most "correct" from a release engineering point of view, but involves more work for everyone. The fourth is quick pain relief but is a little forky.
