Hi,

This pull updates seabios in qemu to the latest bits from seabios
master, so the upcoming 1.2 qemu release gets all the new shiny
stuff added recently.  I'd like to have a new seabios release for
inclusion into qemu 1.2 which is planned for September 1st.

So how about this plan:
  - merge seabios snapshot now (this pull req), so it gets testing
    in the qemu testing & release candidates phase
  - put seabios into bugfixing freeze too (now or in a few days),
    fix any issues poping up in testing.
  - roll out seabios release by end of august, so it can be included
    into qemu 1.2

Anthony?  Kevin?  Fine are you ok with this?

qemu release schedule is here: http://wiki.qemu.org/Planning/1.2

cheers,
  Gerd

Would the above schedule be realistic?  I'm be inclined to just go
with seabios 1.7.0 in 1.2 and arrange for an upgrade for the next qemu
release.

I think it is (unless you scheduled your summer vacation for August),
thats why I suggested it.

What concerns do you have?

We have a bunch of user-visible new features in master which I'd like to
have included in qemu 1.2 ...

We really would need a SeaBIOS release by no later than August 21st to
do this.  The 1.2 release is on September 1st but we're in hard freeze
starting on August 15th.  I wouldn't want to make any changes later than
the 21st.

Anthony Liguori

I'm fine with tagging a release.  However, I think testing coverage is
the biggest concern.  If you want to do this, I suggest we pull the
current SeaBIOS snapshot now (as Gerd's plan calls for), and I'll
immediately start a bugfix only mode.
