I don't know, the way pc-bios/ works seems just wrong to me.  pc-bios 
should IMO be its own build system with support for docker-based cross 
compilers similar to tests/tcg.

In fact one thing I was considering before falling in love with Meson :) 
was to write a simple meta-build-system for all of QEMU-owned ROMs, 
submodules such as SLOF and tests/tcg.  I never even got to the 
whiteboard phase, but if this were done, we could just build all the 
firmwares as a Meson 0.56 "external project"[1].
