The right way to fix this is for QEMU to stop shipping binary BIOS
blobs in its source tarballs. Instead the developers of the BIOS
should release them separately with an appropriate testing
and release process which ensures that they're compiled with
whichever toolchain is required.

(just my opinion of course, which I state mostly to give people
something to disagree with...)
