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.

It assumes support for both in option roms. The big advantage to gpxe is that it already has generic scsi support.
