How do we manage the stable series wrt this issue?

qemu-kvm-0.12.5 has a regression within the stable series that this 
patch fixes.  qemu 0.12.5 does not, but only because it does not emulate 
polarity in the I/O APIC correctly.

There are several paths we could take:

- do nothing, bug is fixed in mainline
- release a seabios 0.x.1 for qemu 0.13.1 with this patch
- same, plus seabios 0.y.1 for qemu 0.12.6 with this patch
- skip qemu (which is not truly affected), patch qemu-kvm's copy of 
seabios for both 0.12.z and 0.13.z

The third option is the most "correct" from a release engineering point 
of view, but involves more work for everyone.  The fourth is quick pain 
relief but is a little forky.
