In fact I'd much prefer to see extboot rewritten to just virtio-block.

Hmm, I'd prefer something which is *not* used by the guest OS, so it is
a pure bootloader thing.  When using it to boot from scsi you don't want
to have the disk show up twice (as virtio and scsi) in the guest.

You're assuming noone ever writes OS support for extboot...

Which would be almost as silly as writing OS support for bios-int13 ...
