jordan.l.justen@intel.com - May 7, 2013, 5:15 p.m.
The isapc machine with seabios currently requires the BIOS region
to be read/write memory rather than read-only memory.

KVM currently cannot support the BIOS as a ROM region, but qemu
in non-KVM mode can. Based on this, isapc machine currently only
works with KVM.

To work-around this isapc issue, this change avoids marking the
BIOS as readonly for isapc.

This change also will allow KVM to start supporting ROM mode
via KVM_CAP_READONLY_MEM.
