The hvmloader provided tables are the correct ones to use. This is the

AFAIK the SeaBIOS tables are a qemu/kvm-ism.

I want try if seabios tables solves the problem.
If yes what I must change on seabios code for test it?
Yes, substantially.

I very much doubt it will make any difference to whatever issue you are
having and would be a waste of time.

I don't think your issue will be solved by trying random things like
this anyway. If you are interested in fixing this then you are going to
have to dive in and try to understand the code well enough to figure out
what is going wrong.

I see the "HVM firmware passthrough" patch, but I not found documentation about it.
Can I use it to do a rapid test adding qxl vgabios?
With xen seabios is built-in into hvmloader (instead of kvm and qemu).
I didn't see any fixed paths to link vgabioses so I think that seabios can't autoload it in xen now.
