Well, we do already have that (see -machine firmware=whatever), but...

...it's much easier to keep the blob outside QEMU because otherwise
it has to have a git submodule and be built somehow and is generally
a bit of a faff.

Is this FEX stuff actually supported by the upstream Linux kernel?
Googling mostly produced a bunch of stuff from a mid-year flamewar.
I definitely don't think we should add any special support for it in
QEMU if it's just some random thing that isn't going to be upstreamed.
