In that case, I'll have to revert a change made to lib/cbfs.c to walk 
the chain of files (instead of a brute force walk through the whole 
image). SeaBIOS will have to do likewise.

And that means, that we either need some cache about file locations in 
the readers, or certain operations will be very expensive (eg. SeaBIOS 
looking for all kind of pci*roms)
