[SeaBIOS] [PATCH 00/13] SeaBIOS as Compatibility Support Module for UEFI/OVMF

This patch series adds support for using SeaBIOS as a Compatibility Support
Module (CSM) to provide "Legacy" BIOS services under UEFI/OVMF.

With a version of OVMF suitably patched to stop it from marking our stack
in the 0xE0000 segment as read-only (see README.CSM), it has been tested
with various Linux systems, Windows 7, OpenBSD 5.2, FreeBSD 8/9, NetBSD,
DragonflyBSD, Solaris 10/11.

It also fixes issues with Windows 2008r2 which rather stupidly invokes
INT 10h for video setup even when booted in EFI mode!

I haven't quite finished going through the corporate bureaucracy for 
releasing this, so it's for review only.
