I guess -bios would load coreboot. Coreboot would siphon the data necessary for ACPI table building through the current (same) fw_cfg bottleneck, build the tables,
So, this is really about making coreboot+seabios the default QEMU firmware, and making seabios depend on being a coreboot payload?
I still think it's better to simply have qemu generate the acpi tables, but if that isn't going to be accepted we should seriously consider & evaluate switching to coreboot.
load the boot firmware (SeaBIOS or OVMF or something else -- not sure how to configure that),
It wouldn't be loading OVMF. It would be loading CorebootPkg.
Yep. Some OVMF bits would be needed though (virtio drivers, qemu boot priority support, ...).
