I agree.

Sounds good to me.  All we need to do is pass a start address into
seabios and then seabios can add it to the list of boot options.

One thing to be careful here is that the second payload must be above
1M (so seabios doesn't stomp on it).  Also, as Carl-Daniel points out,
there is nothing stopping an option rom from stomping on the second

In any case, if someone is willing to code this into coreboot, I'll
add the corresponding parts to seabios.
