vboot: standardize on working data size Previously, the size of memory made for vboot_working_data through the macro VBOOT2_WORK was always specified in each individual memlayout file. However, there is effectively no reason to provide this customizability -- the workbuf size required for verifying firmware has never been more than 12K. (This could potentially increase in the future if key sizes or algorithms are changed, but this could be applied globally rather than for each individual platform.) This CL binds the VBOOT2_WORK macro to directly use the VB2_WORKBUF_RECOMMENDED_DATA_SIZE constant as defined by vboot API. Since the constant needs to be used in a linker script, we may not include the full vboot API, and must instead directly include the vb2_constants.h header.

coreboot is a Free Software project aimed at replacing the proprietary BIOS (firmware) found in most computers. coreboot performs a little bit of hardware initialization and then executes additional boot logic, called a payload.
With the separation of hardware initialization and later boot logic, coreboot can scale from specialized applications that run directly firmware, run operating systems in flash, load custom bootloaders, or implement firmware standards, like PC BIOS services or UEFI. This allows for systems to only include the features necessary in the target application, reducing the amount of code and flash space required.
coreboot was formerly known as LinuxBIOS.
After the basic initialization of the hardware has been performed, any desired "payload" can be started by coreboot.
See https://www.coreboot.org/Payloads for a list of supported payloads.
coreboot supports a wide range of chipsets, devices, and mainboards.
For details please consult:
ANY_TOOLCHAINKconfig option if you're feeling lucky (no support in this case).
Please consult https://www.coreboot.org/Build_HOWTO for details.
If you want to test coreboot without any risks before you really decide to use it on your hardware, you can use the QEMU system emulator to run coreboot virtually in QEMU.
Please see https://www.coreboot.org/QEMU for details.
Further details on the project, a FAQ, many HOWTOs, news, development guidelines and more can be found on the coreboot website:
