OK, that looks like a correct translation of <boot dev='hd'/> into device
bootindex so everything is fine on libvirt side.

IIRC this is too old to support bootindex. I think at least 0.6.1 is needed
(or maybe even 0.6.2 unless some patches were backported). I wonder why qemu
with bootindex support is shipped with seabios that lacks this support. I'm
not sure what we should do about this.
