we're talking about removing option ROM support from coreboot, because
we can never do the job in as general a way as people need, unless we
become a full bios. Seabios can. So if you want option rom support,
you will load seabios in to the F segment and let it run the option
roms. Part of the problem is that option roms will want to call bios
services, and coreboot doesn't do those services; but seabios does.
