Arch packaged OVMF fails to detect CDROM media when machine type is set to q35

Additional info:
* package version(s): 18419-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Start qemu with ovmf to boot an UEFI capable iso such as Arch Linux installer or Windows installer, with machine type set to q35

$ qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -machine type=q35,accel=kvm -m 1G -bios /usr/share/ovmf/ovmf_x64.bin -drive file=./archlinux-2016.08.01-dual.iso,media=cdrom

Note: extracted OVMF from fedora 24 rpm[1] doesn't have this issue. Latest jenkins rpm[2] also doesn't have this issue.

This task depends upon

@alive4ever: Sorry for the long delay. Please check whether edk2-ovmf 202002-6 in [testing] fixes this for you!

I have tried this myself lately and this does not seem to be an issue anymore.
