extlinux and the mbr

Hi All,

Just wondering if we should work around [1] in our cloud/atomic
kickstart scripts for building images by copying the bits in 
/usr/share/syslinux/mbr.bin to the mbr of the disk. 

I've been doing some 'manual' virt-install  builds of the cloud/atomic 
images using the same kickstart/tree from koji and I notice that
my guests don't boot from disk unless I cat mbr.bin to /dev/vda. 

Thoughts? I can work on drafting and testing a work around if desired.
