I was having trouble with v2 running the VGA rom using the emu86: It
didn't initialize the display at all. Some suggestions were made to try
vm86 instead, like on the epia-m. But I never managed to get that to
fly. The vm86 is a standard alternative on v3, and the m57sli has been a
WIP-supported board for some time now, so I thought I'd give it a try.

No, I never got v3 code to work on the hardware yet.

Unfortunately the lack of acpi is both in v2 and v3...
