I'm still not convinced we need extboot for all bioses on the long term.
And I think we should define new interfaces in a way that finally makes
it obsolete, at least for our "home bios" (whatever it will be).

What we won't need long term is the extboot interface (hw/extboot.c).
Ideally, we would rewrite the extboot option rom to have a proper
virtio-blk driver in it. Better yet, to finish up Laurent's work of
adding virtio-blk support to gpxe since it gives us bcv for free.

That doesn't cover booting from scsi.
It also doesn't cover booting from usb.

cheers,
