[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/4]

This patchset creates new -boot options quiet and prompt.
Syntax: qemu -boot cad,quiet=foo,prompt=bar

See discussion on the kvm mailing list:

quiet silences normal text output from the bios and vgabios. I 
rarely care to see this output and it looks much cleaner when the 
first thing shown in a KVM window is init or splash (or the dreaded 
Windows logo)

prompt=0 lets you explicitly skip the "Press f12 for boot menu" option 
saving ~3 seconds on each boot. It is also implied by quietboot.
This is the default action. prompt=1 must be specified in order to
see this menu.

I'm very new to patches and mailing lists so any 
etiquette/procedural comments or critiques are appreciated.
Feel free to bash me or the code...

Also, my asm-fu is weak so I'm sure those few lines need some help.
