This project has the source code to build two binaries: bios.bin and
vgabios-cirrus.bin, which are required for x86 emulation in the
Android emulator: platform/external/qemu.
SOURCE CODE
+ bios.bin: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/bochs/bochs.git
The file bios.bin is actually rombios16.bin, which is built from
bochs/bios. We used the following commit in the bochs git tree so that
it can match with the qemu tree in platform/external/qemu:

Fixed compilation error + x86-64 correctness fix
Since our purpose is to build only rombios16.bin, we populated part
of the bochs tree in the git tree above.
+ vgabios-cirrus.bin: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/vgabios/vgabios.git
The file vgabios-cirrus.bin is VGABIOS-lgpl-latest.cirrus.bin, which
is built by the tree, and we used the following commit.
