[Bug 513273] Re: kvm with -vga std is broken since karmic

So one very viable approach would be to use the vgabios.bin and bios.bin
that's built/shipped with the qemu-kvm source package.

These are the versions of those bios files "blessed" by upstream and
known to work.  It's what upstream would prefer that we used, as these
are tested with the qemu-kvm 0.12.3 release.  As of the 0.12.3 release
tarball, it contains all of the source files necessary to rebuild the
bios bins.  When I packaged and added seabios to Ubuntu, this was not
the case (qemu-kvm 0.12.0).

I think I'll do this in the short term, barring any objections.

For Lucid + 1, I'm working with mjt and lool and hoping to get in sync
with Debian, and use a common set of packaging between Debian and
Ubuntu, which would ideally use the separate vgabios and seabios
