[18.10 FEAT] KVM: Interactive Bootloader

Bug #1780769 reported by bugproxy on 2018-07-09

Skipper Bug Screeners

Bug Description

As of now, QEMU will only boot the default kernel. I.e. zipl menus will be ignored. This line item should remedy the situation, and allow for interactivity in the bootload, which can possibly extend beyond zipl boot menus.
Provide a console interface to the QEMU bootloader firmware, allowing to interactively select boot entries.
Released with qemu 2.12
