job from starting properly, LP: #559896

66. By Dustin Kirkland 

debian/qemu-kvm.default: allow the kernel to determine the default,

  - suggest openbios-sparc, which is in universe, and provides the
    powerpc/sparc openbios roms (when that package actually builds)
* debian/links:
  - put links in place for the external seabios and vgabios blobs
* debian/patches/larger_default_ram_size.patch: increase the default
  mem size for virtual machines from the mostly unusable 128M to 384M,
  which most modern distros require
