Markus Armbruster - Feb. 20, 2013, 4:55 p.m.
Option "once" sets up a different boot order just for the initial
boot.  Boot order reverts back to normal on reset.  Option "order"
changes the normal boot order.

The reversal is implemented by reset handler restore_boot_devices,
which takes boot order to revert to as argument.
restore_boot_devices() does nothing on its first call, because that
must be the initial machine reset.  On its second call, it changes the
boot order back, and unregisters itself.

Because we register the handler right when -boot gets parsed, we can
revert to an incorrect normal boot order, and multiple -boot can
interact in funny ways.

Here's how things work without -boot once or order:

* boot_devices is "".

* main() passes machine->boot_order to to machine->init(), because
  boot_devices is "".  machine->init() configures firmware
  accordingly.  For PC machines, machine->boot_order is "cad", and
  pc_cmos_init() writes it to RTC CMOS, where SeaBIOS picks it up.

Now consider -boot order=:

* boot_devices is "".

* -boot order= sets boot_devices to "" (no change).

* main() passes machine->boot_order to to machine->init(), because
  boot_devices is "", as above.

  Bug: -boot order= has no effect.  Broken in commit e4ada29e.

Next, consider -boot once=a:

* boot_devices is "".

* -boot once=a registers restore_boot_devices with argument "", and
  sets boot_devices to "a".

* main() passes boot_devices "a" to machine->init(), which configures
  firmware accordingly.  For PC machines, pc_cmos_init() writes the
  boot order to RTC CMOS.

* main() calls qemu_system_reset().  This runs reset handlers.

  - restore_boot_devices() gets called with argument "".  Does
    nothing, because it's the first call.

* Machine boots, boot order is "a".

* Machine resets (e.g. monitor command).  Reset handlers run.

  - restore_boot_devices() gets called with argument "".  Calls
    qemu_boot_set("") to reconfigure firmware.  For PC machines,
    pc_boot_set() writes it into RTC CMOS.  Reset handler
    unregistered.

    Bug: boot order reverts to "" instead of machine->boot_order.  The
    actual boot order depends on how firmware interprets "".  Broken
    in commit e4ada29e.

Next, consider -boot once=a -boot order=c:

* boot_devices is "".

* -boot once=a registers restore_boot_devices with argument "", and
  sets boot_devices to "a".

* -boot order=c sets boot_devices to "c".

* main() passes boot_devices "c" to machine->init(), which configures
  firmware accordingly.  For PC machines, pc_cmos_init() writes the
  boot order to RTC CMOS.

* main() calls qemu_system_reset().  This runs reset handlers.

  - restore_boot_devices() gets called with argument "".  Does
    nothing, because it's the first call.

* Machine boots, boot order is "c".

  Bug: it should be "a".  I figure this has always been broken.

* Machine resets (e.g. monitor command).  Reset handlers run.

  - restore_boot_devices() gets called with argument "".  Calls
    qemu_boot_set("") to reconfigure firmware.  For PC machines,
    pc_boot_set() writes it into RTC CMOS.  Reset handler
    unregistered.

    Bug: boot order reverts to "" instead of "c".  I figure this has
    always been broken, just differently broken before commit
    e4ada29e.

Next, consider -boot once=a -boot once=b -boot once=c:

* boot_devices is "".

* -boot once=a registers restore_boot_devices with argument "", and
  sets boot_devices to "a".

* -boot once=b registers restore_boot_devices with argument "a", and
  sets boot_devices to "b".

* -boot once=c registers restore_boot_devices with argument "b", and
  sets boot_devices to "c".

* main() passes boot_devices "c" to machine->init(), which configures
  firmware accordingly.  For PC machines, pc_cmos_init() writes the
  boot order to RTC CMOS.

* main() calls qemu_system_reset().  This runs reset handlers.

  - restore_boot_devices() gets called with argument "".  Does
    nothing, because it's the first call.

  - restore_boot_devices() gets called with argument "a".  Calls
    qemu_boot_set("a") to reconfigure firmware.  For PC machines,
    pc_boot_set() writes it into RTC CMOS.  Reset handler
    unregistered.

  - restore_boot_devices() gets called with argument "b".  Calls
    qemu_boot_set("b") to reconfigure firmware.  For PC machines,
    pc_boot_set() writes it into RTC CMOS.  Reset handler
    unregistered.

* Machine boots, boot order is "b".

  Bug: should really be "c", because that came last, and for all other
  -boot options, the last one wins.  I figure this has was broken some
  time before commit 37905d6a, and fixed only for a single occurence
  of "once" there.

* Machine resets (e.g. monitor command).  Reset handlers run.

  - restore_boot_devices() gets called with argument "".  Calls
    qemu_boot_set("") to reconfigure firmware.  For PC machines,
    pc_boot_set() writes it into RTC CMOS.  Reset handler
    unregistered.

    Same bug as above: boot order reverts to "" instead of
    machine->boot_order.

Fix by acting upon -boot options order, once and menu only after
option parsing is complete, and the machine is known.  This is how the
other -boot options work already.
