Not to sound like a broken record, but isn't 5.3 a good time to flip the
default on this to use packet mode boot and make the option "-o
ancient_bios" (or something similar). There are few systems that will
ever run V5 that don't support packet booting today and the frequency
of this being reported is going higher and higher as big disks become
more common.

Let's change this now...before the pain gets worse.
