This has been discussed several times before. The proper solution
is to teach the bios how to boot off SCSI devices. IIRC support for
virtio devices already exists, implementing support for the SCSI
controller shouldn't be that much harder.

Couldn't we just have an option rom for the SCSI controller? The same
way the VGABIOS is a rewrite of a VGA BIOS for the Cirrus Logic...

There already is one. Needs qemu 0.12.4 or newer. Unfortunaly it isn't redistributable, so we can't easily integrate it. Thus seabios support or a free option rom would still be nice to have.

Fetch http://www.lsi.com/DistributionSystem/AssetDocument/files/support/ssp/sdms/Bios/lsi_bios.zip -> unzip -> boot with "-option-rom 8xx_64.rom"
