FYI. Hopefully this will be fixed in Bochs, but in the meantime I've
committed the following change to SeaBIOS:
@@ -182,7 +182,9 @@ wait_floppy_irq(void)
v = GET_BDA(floppy_recalibration_status);
if (v & FRS_TIMEOUT)
+ // Could use wait_irq() here, but that causes issues on
+ // bochs, so use yield() instead.
v &= ~FRS_TIMEOUT;
