soc/amd: Convert from AMD units to coreboot units There are several files under soc/amd that use units defined by file porting.h. These units use upper case, and are not recognized by checkpatch, thus causing problems when defining a pointer (request to use space before and after the star symbol). These are the definitions from porting.h showing the units that this patch will change and their coreboot definitions (not all are actually used): typedef uintptr_t UINTN; typedef int64_t INT64; typedef uint64_t UINT64; typedef int32_t INT32; typedef uint32_t UINT32; typedef int16_t INT16; typedef uint16_t UINT16; typedef int8_t INT8; typedef uint8_t UINT8; typedef char CHAR8; typedef unsigned short CHAR16; typedef unsigned char BOOLEAN; typedef void VOID; BUG=b:118775313 TEST=Build and boot grunt.

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:
