My testing shows that it's not enough (what I've written in that thread).

Try it yourself - boot a guest, open VNC console, and when it's still in 
BIOS / bootloader sequence, type as many keys as you can, move your 
mouse as much as you can. If needed, just reboot the guest.

Linux guest will boot with "i8042.c: No controller found" and no keyboard.

Further discussion seem to lead to a conclusion that there is some 
obscure bug in Qemu BIOS which makes this problem visible.
