mainboard/ocp: Add support for OCP platform TiogaPass

OCP platform Tiogapass is a 2-socket server platform, which
is based on a chipset including Intel Skylake-SP processors
and a Lewisburg PCH. Skylake-SP is a processor in Intel Xeon
Scalable Processor family.

Following ACPI tables are added:

This patchset is tested on a Tiogapass board. It booted with
Linux kernel 4.16.0; lscpu command shows all 72 cpus (2 sockets,
18 cores, 2 thread per core); ssh command shows
networking is up from Mellanox ConnectX-4 PCIe NIC card.

Towards successful gerrit buildbot build, note that:
* microcode is in coreboot intel-microcode submodule repo.
* IFD binary is included in this patch.
* Dummy ME binary is used, as it may take long time for Intel
ME binary to be available in public domain.
* Fake FSP binary is used, as at this moment the SKX-SP
FSP binary is not going to be available in public domain.

Known issues (Not intend to address in this initial support for
Xeon-SP processors):
* c6 state is not supported.
* dsdt table is not fully populated, such as processor/socket
devices, some PCIe devices.
* SMM handlers are not added.

Following are some command execution with CentOS booted from
local SATA disk:

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)

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.
