It's your call.

For bochs, we have a patch queue built in pc-bios.  For stable, I'd add 
individual patches that fix issues if they came up.  I generally 
wouldn't update to a newer bochs SVN though b/c bochs has a bad habit of 
breaking things upstream.

So two options would be to include a new OpenBIOS version or just apply 
the patches that you think are important.
