I don't feel like placing a seabios git snapshot into qemu.

I think we should just cherry-pick everything we need for qemu 1.5 into
the 1.7.2-stable branch, roll out a release and put that into
qemu 1.5.

So, what will be needed?

  (1) The two commits listed above.
  (2) The patch for the pvpanic device (assuming it gets
      merged for 1.5).

Anything else?

Hard freeze for qemu 1.5 is next Wednesday.


PS: For qemu 1.6 (which will hopefully include the acpi table
    reorganization) we will need a new release from the master
    branch and thus a bit more careful release planning.
