The second problem we are facing is when initializing VGA we are executing 
the option roms in an emulator to keep things encapsulated. When we do
this in userspace, the whole process takes round about 3s whereas in
LinuxBIOS the same emulator (x86emu as used in X.org) needs 90s.

Two theories:
 - caching of the C segment is messed up
 - timing is messed up
