some more detail on this. We have temporarily modified linuxbios to do 
everything EXCEPT actually run the emulator. This ensures that the routing 
is right in 18:1 etc. but allows us to defer running the bios until we can 
run the user mode testbios.

I think that a CMOS setting and/or build time option to enable this would 
be very useful.
