neither of us are packing it into coreboot.rom. The ROM is being found
as an expansion ROM attached to the PCI device.

Then the code copies the ROM  over itself (memcpy c0000 to c0000).
This is probably not harmful, but definitely not needed, and quite
wrong for real hardware.

I have the patched vgavios. This was all working for me a few weeks
ago. This problem is something new, and I'm not sure what.

Interesting that it works on real hardware!
