$subject says pretty much everything.

extboot.[cS] are a straight copy from the kvm tree. The windup in vl,c and hw/pc.c is done slightly different, I've added a function to lookup
the boot drive instead of adding a new global variable.

I think the function here is high even if the implementation is ugly.
In the past, Paul strongly objected to this.  Paul, care to comment?

Doesn't gpxe support virtio-blk, without requiring any additional qemu

As far I know patches exist but where never merged.
Also there is no way to boot from scsi+usb ...

I think Kevin mentioned he would likely to usb boot support for SeaBIOS. Adding virtio-blk support to SeaBIOS would also be pretty reasonable.

SCSI is a bit more tough. Doing an LSI driver in SeaBIOS would be a bit tougher.
