Description: When starting qemu using seabios, it shows the wrong version/ name.
It actually displays the build date and the build machine name instead.

Changing this will make this package (more) reproducible.

Additional info:
* seabios 1.13.0-2
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:

Download the latest archiso image and boot it:

qemu-system-x86_64 \
-boot order=d,menu=on,reboot-timeout=5000 \
-m size=3072,slots=0,maxmem=$((3072*1024*1024)) \
-k en \
-name archiso,process=archiso_0 \
-drive file="archiso-2020.07.01-x86_64.iso",media=cdrom,readonly=on \
-display sdl \
-vga virtio \
-enable-kvm \

The very first screen shown will display the information as attached in the image to this ticket.
This task depends upon
