rules.h: Rename ENV_VERSTAGE to ENV_SEPARATE_VERSTAGE When CONFIG_SEPARATE_VERSTAGE=n, all verstage code gets linked into the appropriate calling stage (bootblock or romstage). This means that ENV_VERSTAGE is actually 0, and instead ENV_BOOTBLOCK or ENV_ROMSTAGE are 1. This keeps tripping up people who are just trying to write a simple "are we in verstage (i.e. wherever the vboot init logic runs)" check, e.g. for TPM init functions which may run in "verstage" or ramstage depending on whether vboot is enabled. Those checks will not work as intended for CONFIG_SEPARATE_VERSTAGE=n. This patch renames ENV_VERSTAGE to ENV_SEPARATE_VERSTAGE to try to clarify that this macro can really only be used to check whether code is running in a *separate* verstage, and clue people in that they may need to cover the linked-in verstage case as well.

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:
