loader: move 16KB BSS buffer from pxe to bio and use it with biosdisk
The pxe.c has local buffer allocated from BSS and only used for pxe. Rebuild the code to move this buffer to bio.c, and provide simple allocate/release functions and adapt the biosdisk.c to use this buffer.
This will allow us to use 16k bounce back buffer instead of current 4k one.
