Description Daniel Berrange 2012-03-19 08:32:23 EDT
Description of problem:

Run any QEMU command, eg

  # qemu-kvm -curses -cdrom someiso.iso -boot d

   SeaBIOS (version 0.6.2)

          gPXE (http://etherboot.org) - 00:03.0 C900 PCI2.10 PnP BBS PMM07E0@10 C900 
          Press Ctrl-B to configure gPXE (PCI 00:03.0)...                                 

and that gPXE banner forces a 2 second delay in the boot process. This was previously fixed in etherboot, but this came back to life in gpxe. Upstream QEMU ROMs don't suffer this flaw.
