The rombios supports trying to boot from more than one device and then
falling back.  The attached makes it so that we can take advantage of
that in the device model.  Just set 'boot=dc' in your config file to try
booting first from the CD and then the hard drive.

Sent as an RFC to qemu-devel so that this can hopefully come in for free
at some point.  But it might be useful functionality to have before
