The floppy boot emulation is called ElTorito and is a BIOS extension.

Coreboot does not (and should not IMO) implement it.

Try using the real filename on the disc. I don't know how FILO deals
with ISO9660 extensions, filename casing and such. Best would be to
add lots of debugging prints to the 9660 decoding in FILO.
