I think both, kvm-unit-tests or qtest+libqos would be good candidates.
Please don't invent a new bios base test image, since kvm-unit-tests
should be very similar already and we really don't need to duplicate
work here.

Anyway, you'd need to add some CSS infracture there first (in both
kvm-unit-tests and the qtest environments), so it's likely a similar
amount of work. qtest has the advantage that it gets checked
automatically during "make check" each time, so I'd have a weak
preference for that one.
