This option is used to enable certain functions to make coreboot
work correctly on symmetric multi processor (SMP) systems.

help
Select MMX in your socket or model Kconfig if your CPU has MMX
streaming SIMD instructions. ROMCC can build more efficient
code if it can spill to MMX registers.

help
Select SSE in your socket or model Kconfig if your CPU has SSE
streaming SIMD instructions. ROMCC can build more efficient
code if it can spill to SSE (aka XMM) registers.

help
Select SSE2 in your socket or model Kconfig if your CPU has SSE2
streaming SIMD instructions. Some parts of coreboot can be built
with more efficient code if SSE2 instructions are available.

Select this option if you want microcode updates to be assembled when
building coreboot and included in the final image as a separate CBFS
file. Microcode will not be hard-coded into ramstage.
The microcode file may be removed from the ROM image at a later
time with cbfstool, if desired.
If unsure, select this option.

Select this option if you want to include external binary files
in the CPUs native format. They will be included as a separate
file in CBFS.
A word of caution: only select this option if you are sure the
microcode that you have is newer than the microcode shipping with
coreboot.
The microcode file may be removed from the ROM image at a later
time with cbfstool, if desired.
If unsure, and applicable, select "Generate from tree"

Select this option if you want to include external c header files
containing the CPU microcode. This will be included as a separate
file in CBFS.
A word of caution: only select this option if you are sure the
microcode that you have is newer than the microcode shipping with
coreboot.
The microcode file may be removed from the ROM image at a later
time with cbfstool, if desired.

Select this option if you do not want CPU microcode included in CBFS.
Microcode may be added to the ROM image at a later time with cbfstool,
if desired.

The GOOD:
Microcode updates intend to solve issues that have been discovered
after CPU production. The expected effect is that systems work as
intended with the updated microcode, but we have also seen cases where
issues were solved by not applying microcode updates.
The BAD:
Note that some operating system include these same microcode patches,
so you may need to also disable microcode updates in your operating
system for this option to have an effect.
The UGLY:
A word of CAUTION: some CPUs depend on microcode updates to function
correctly. Not updating the microcode may leave the CPU operating at
less than optimal performance, or may cause outright hangups.
There are CPUs where coreboot cannot properly initialize the CPU
without microcode updates
For example, if running with the factory microcode, some Intel
SandyBridge CPUs may hang when enabling CAR, or some VIA Nano CPUs
will hang when changing the frequency.
Make sure you have a way of flashing the ROM externally before
selecting this option.

help
Some platforms have microcode in the blobs directory, and these can
be hardcoded in the makefiles. For platforms with microcode
binaries that aren't in the makefile, set this option to pull
in the microcode.
This should contain the full path of the file for one or more
microcode binary files to include, separated by spaces.
If unsure, leave this blank.
