This is a very big patch (>1000 lines), and I still can't believe that the kvm/qemu team
really considers to remove scsi boot capabilities.  If they really plan to remove it, it is 
better we also remove it in 2.0 (2.0 is a new major release, so it is the perfect place 
to add/remove feature). But I really hope that someone implement the bootindex
code for scsi instead.
