soc/intel/tigerlake: Enable Hybrid storage mode

To use Optane memory, we need to set 2x2 PCIe lane mode while we need
to set 1x4 PCIe lane mode for NVMe. The mode can be selected using
the FIT tool at build time.

By enabling hybrid storage mode in FSP, FSP will set 2x2 PCIe lane mode
if Optane memory is detected and the mode is not 2x2 and set 1x4 PCIe
lane mode if Optane memory is not detected and the mode is not 1x4
during boot up. The mode is saved in SPI NOR for next boot.

TEST=Build and test booting TGLRVP from NVMe and Optane
Check PCIe lane configuration.

Show all the NVMe devices
lspci -d ::0108
Show all the NVMe devices and be really verbose
lspci -vvvd ::0108
Print PCIe lane capabilities and configurations for all the NVMe devices.
lspci -vvvd ::0108 | grep -e x[124]
Print all the PCIe information of the device ae:00.0

coreboot README

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 for a list of supported payloads.

Supported Hardware

coreboot supports a wide range of chipsets, devices, and mainboards.

For details please consult:

Build Requirements

  • make
  • gcc / g++ Because Linux distribution compilers tend to use lots of patches. coreboot does lots of "unusual" things in its build system, some of which break due to those patches, sometimes by gcc aborting, sometimes - and that's worse - by generating broken object code. Two options: use our toolchain (eg. make crosstools-i386) or enable the ANY_TOOLCHAIN Kconfig option if you're feeling lucky (no support in this case).
  • iasl (for targets with ACPI support)
  • pkg-config
  • libssl-dev (openssl)


  • doxygen (for generating/viewing documentation)
  • gdb (for better debugging facilities on some targets)
  • ncurses (for make menuconfig and make nconfig)
  • flex and bison (for regenerating parsers)

Building coreboot

Please consult for details.

Testing coreboot Without Modifying Your Hardware

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 for details.
