vboot: create board-specific test-only GBB HWID if not set The HWID in vboot GBB is an identifier for machine model. On Chrome OS, that should be provisioned in manufacturing process (by collecting real hardware information), and will be checked in system startup. For bring up developers, they usually prefer to generate a test-only string for HWID. However that format was not well documented and cause problems. Further more, most Chromebooks are using HWID v3+ today while the test-only HWID is usually v2. Non-Chrome OS developers may also prefer their own format. To simplify development process, the GBB_CONFIG now defaults to empty string, and will be replaced by a board-specific test-only v2 HWID automatically. Developers can still override that in mainboard Kconfig if they prefer v3 or other arbitrary format. BUG=b:140067412 TEST=Built 'kukui' successfully. Removed kukui GBB config and built again, still seeing correct test HWID.

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:
