I've tested qemu+SeaBIOS with floppies.  I'm sure
qemu+coreboot+SeaBIOS would work with floppies, but it's currently
disabled.  (If you look in src/floppy.c you'll see a specific test
that turns off floppy support when coreboot support is enabled.)  I
disabled the support because I wasn't sure if it would work on real
hardware and I didn't want to complicate testing of other things.
