No boot rom should do that. extboot wreaks havoc when it is used.
And since virtio is now supported by bios there is no reason to use it.
You don't really have a choice. You could be doing hardware
passthrough and the ROM on the card may hijack int19.
Then this particular HW would be broken on real HW too and will not
respect BIOS settings. But the code we provide should work properly.
Whoever needs scsi boot should add it to seabios too.
I don't disagree.
I think the best thing to do is to let SeaBIOS create a boot order
table that contains descriptive information and then advertise that
What for? Why this step is needed?
QEMU can then try to associate the list of bootable devices with
it's own set of devices and select a preferred order that it can
then give back to SeaBIOS. SeaBIOS can then present that list to
the user for additional refinement.
Why not skip your first step and let QEMU create boot order list and
pass it into Seabios. If menu=on option is present user will be able to
override the default from Seabios.
