[Xen-devel] [PATCH v3 0/5] hvmloader: Make ROM dependencies optional

This patch set mainly allows the user to build a seabios or rombios only
version of hvmloader.
In addition, when building a seabios only hvmloader, Option ROMs like
vgabios and etherboot are no longer required, and therefore can be disabled
from the build. Dependency on the bcc compiler can also be avoided the
same way.

v2: Separate patches for separate issues
   Introduced config option to select which NIC to build ROM for
   Fixed initial patch to build multiple etherboot ROMs in hvmloader
   Option ROMs are keyed off wether or not rombios is enabled, rather than
on an individual basis
   Introduced config options to select support for rombios/seabios

v3: Fix mkhex script to take several file arguments on the command line
    Reorganize hvmloader option ROM loading code to make it optionnal, and
make bios->load_roms a callback that the BIOS support code has to implement
if option ROM loading is desired.
    Cosmetic change in tools/firmware/Makefile in the way seabios-dir is

Julian Pidancet (5):
  hvmloader: Only compile 32bitbios_support.c when rombios is enabled
  hvmloader: Allow the mkhex command to take several file arguments
  firmware: Use mkhex from hvmloader directory for etherboot ROMs
  hvmloader: Move option ROM loading into a separate optionnal file
  firmware: Introduce CONFIG_ROMBIOS and CONFIG_SEABIOS options
