This isn't currently supported; you must use -kernel. (Also,
you'll need a -device virtio-blk-device... argument to go with
that -drive option to tell QEMU where to plug your disk in.)

(We are working on support for booting a UEFI bios, and when
that is landed you'll be able to say -bios uefi.bin -drive...
-device virtio-blk-device... to get the UEFI blob to read
the disk image. But that's not supported yet.)
