Yes, this is where we should end up long-term.  For the time being I
think it is fine to use the existing mechanism to switch over table by
table, and once we have the code to generate all tables in qemu we can
switch over to an interface where we simply pass all tables as single
blob.  I think we don't even need the romfile_loader, or do have smbios
tables pointers which need to be fixed up?
