+QEMU Firmware Configuration
+QEMU allows passing values to the guest via the 'fw_cfg' parameter. Settings
+are defined on a key/value basis, where the key follows a directory-like structure:
+These settings can be edited in the GUI via 'Options' -> 'QEMU Firmware Configuration'.
+User-supplied keys *must* be prefixed with `opt/` and are recommended to start with a
+reverse fully qualified domain name. `opt/ovmf/` and `opt/org.qemu/` are reserved for
+internal use by QEMU and should not be set. Setting a value in the format
+`storage:snippets/file` causes the contents of the file to be included for the key.
