Good point.  I'm not sure why I can't get VMware to boot coreboot configured
for Qemu.  It fails before there is any output with the message: 

	The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. You will
need 	to power off or reset the virtual machine at this point.

Since when I boot into Linux with their BIOS /proc/cpuinfo shows my laptop's
processor, I thought this must be part of the problem.  Maybe it's not.
