    I was away, so sorry for the delay. The patch looks OK to me now.

    I was thinking again about the VGA ROM's and I tend to believe that even if
    you happen to guess correctly where is the ROM shadowed, it would be better
    to show the _original_ ROM image and deliver the shadow copy as a separate
    file. (If somebody decides to initialize the VGA manually by running the
    code in the ROM, is the shadow copy any better?)

    I think that we can apply the current version of the patch (maybe except the
    shadowing logic) and think about these issues later.

    Have a nice fortnight
