Yes, that probably needs to happen to libvirt.spec when built for F16
(and thus imported into F15 via virt-preview).  I'll tackle that, since
I've been making a couple other spec file patches lately.

It is not a libvirt requirement really. It is QEMU that is advertising
it supports the per-device boot ordering feature. libvirt queries this
and then tries to use it. QEMU should have required the new Seabios if
it intends to advertise this feature.

Ah, then the problem is qemu's spec file. On F16, I see this from 'yum deplist qemu-system-x86':

  dependency: seabios-bin
   provider: seabios-bin.noarch 0.6.2-2.fc16

So it is not requiring a minimal version, and when backporting qemu to F15 via virt-preview, no seabios-bin upgrade is being pulled in. I've created https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=741992 against qemu.
