I just wanted to let everyone know that I've switched the PC machine
type to SeaBIOS and gPXE.  SeaBIOS is a port of the Bochs BIOS to GCC,
by Kevin O'Conner, along with quite a lot of clean up and new feature

gPXE is the new development tree of etherboot which is now
deprecated.  We've done a lot of testing of and while there are a few
outstanding issues, almost everything seems to be working okay.

Some known issues:
o e1000 pxe booting doesn't seem to work
o gPXE does not like the slirp tftp server
o SeaBIOS doesn't support CPU hotplug (not an issue for upstream qemu)

I've renamed the old pcbios to pcbios.bin.  If you suspect a bug in
SeaBIOS, you can use "-bios pcbios.bin" to try with the old BIOS in an
effort to debug.

I want to thank everyone who helped make this all happen.  It was a
big effort and I think it's going to be a really nice feature for the
0.12.0 release!

-kernel (w/ Linux) breaks.

What do the dumps mean?  when are they taken?
