This is a hack specific to my system which I haven't even attempted
to generalize yet.  The ATI/AMD Radeon HD5450 VGA BIOS appears to have
a backdoor to determine the physical address of the device.  It reads
a value matching the top byte of the I/O Port BAR from a register in
VGA I/O port space then uses in/out to that address during BIOS
execution.  On my setup the I/O port BAR is at 0x4000 physically and
emulated for the guest at 0xc0000.  So I simply look for this access
and replace 0x40 with 0xc0.  That's enough for it to get through BIOS
init, but it's still only partially functional (no VGA text mode).
