Correction: we're using a 1 MByte EEPROM, which I notice is the same
size specified for the OLPC.

I'll start digging into the instructions on wiki.laptop.org for
building the OLPC LinuxBIOS. Any idea what configuration parameters
I'd need to twiddle in emulation/qemu-i386/Config.lb to build the
proper size image for qemu?
