For the next master release: we've been working with Marcel on properly
formatting OFW devpaths in QEMU, for the "bootorder" fw_cfg file, for
booting off devices behind a PXB. Patches are on qemu-devel (meaning
they should be okay for 2.4). I have patches for OVMF and Marcel is
looking into SeaBIOS. So, I think support for these devpaths too should
be included in the next master release of SeaBIOS.
