sb/intel/common: Show "Add EC firmware" only for boards that need it Most boards currently do not use EC firmware from SPI flash in the IFD, this hides this option by default and shows it only for boards that need it. A new config variable MAINBOARD_USES_IFD_EC_REGION is introduced to enable this option for boards that need it. The following list of boards requiring this was provided by Lijian Zhao: 1. intel/cannonlake_rvp 2. intel/coffeelake_rvp 3. intel/icelake_rvp 4. google/sarien 5. google/hatch Change-Id: I52ab977319d99a23a5e982cc01479fe801e172a7 Signed-off-by: Jan Tatje <email@example.com> Reviewed-on: https://review.coreboot.org/c/30697 Tested-by: build bot (Jenkins) <firstname.lastname@example.org> Reviewed-by: Nico Huber <email@example.com> Reviewed-by: Lijian Zhao <firstname.lastname@example.org>
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:
