vboot: Change oprom checks to CONFIG_VBOOT, assert OPROM_MATTERS Skipping display init on normal-mode boot is a vboot feature, not specific to Chrome OS. Fix the code in display_init_required() and pci_dev_init() to check CONFIG_VBOOT rather than CONFIG_CHROMEOS now that the two aren't always the same anymore. Also add a check to guarantee at compile time that CONFIG_VBOOT_OPROM_MATTERS is enabled on all platforms that make a check to this function (when CONFIG_VBOOT is also enabled). The whole display skipping mechanism is based on the oprom_needed NVRAM flag, and skipping display init without enabling the option to tell vboot that it needs to pay attention to that flag would make the whole thing not work right.

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:
