hi Kevin,
   I have already found the problem.  Coreboot now use cbfs to organize the
option rom. The vga.rom may be renamed like pci1002,731F.rom. But in
seabios/optionrom.c it just check the filename with prefix "vgaroms/" which
can not load the vgarom.
  maybe coreboot should organzie the vga rom in a different way which can
let seabios detect.
