[Xen-devel] PATCH: Add QEMU BIOS menu for choosing boot device

The attached patch implements a mini BIOS menu for choosing a non-default
boot device. When a guest starts it'll display 

   'Press F10 to select boot device'

And wait 3 seconds, before continuing with the normal boot device. If they
press the F10 key, a menu is shown allowing a choice between floppy,
harddisk, cdrom and network (PXE).

I can't take credit for this originally - Jeremy Katz wrote it for KVM,
I merely re-diffed the patch to work against Xen's QEMU/BIOS code tree.
It has been tested in Fedora successfully against 3.1.x and 3.2.x
