chromeec: Disable battery remaining capacity workaround If remaining charge is more than x% of the full capacity, the remaining charge is raised to the full capacity before it's reported to the rest of the system. Some batteries don't update full capacity timely or don't update it at all. On such systems, compensation is required to guarantee the remaining charge will be equal to the full capacity eventually. On some systems, Rohm charger generates audio noise when the battery is fully charged and AC is plugged. A workaround is to do charge- discharge cycles between 93 and 100%. On such systems, compensation was also applied to mask this cycle from users. This used to be done in ACPI, thus, all software components except EC was able to see the compensated charge. This patch is part of the effort of moving the logic to EC. With this and the EC changes, EC can see what the rest of the system sees, thus, can control LEDs synchronously (to the display percentage). Another rationale of this move is EC can perform more granular and precise compensation than ACPI since it has more knowledge about the battery and the charger.

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:
