[coreboot] v2: Emulator goes astray in pxe-rom images

Hello all,

I have observed a phenomenon too many times now to ignore it.
When I leave an eepro100 network adapter in the pci slot, the
emulator on Coreboot all to often comes to a halt, but its removal
and an immediate cold boot lets Coreboot progress all the way
into Filo. Of course the emulator admits to having found a non-VGA
rom image, but then grounds to a halt, or in the best of cases
spits out an execution exception, or on illegal x86 op-code.

Can someone offer me an explanation, or point me to a procedure
that makes the emulator less picky.

Best regards,

Mats E Andersson
