[coreboot] VGA ROM run on v2 Qemu and in legacybios

I was trying to track some things down and noticed that:

1. legacybios runs the VGA ROM even though Coreboot runs it.
    I think that legacybios should only run option ROMs if it is not
running as a payload.  Otherwise the ROM gets run twice.

2. v2 doesn't run the VGA ROM for Qemu, but v3 does.  I tried putting
in the USES CONFIG_CONSOLE_VGA and defining it to be 1, but it doesn't
make a difference.  I see in the log where it says it will run the
ROM, but I never see the text Plex86/Bochs ... that I see with v3.  I
know that we don't have to protect our hardware in Qemu, but maybe we
should use the emulator so that we use the same pathway for all our v2
