There is 440BX code in LinuxBIOS v1 that should be working, but I
don't know if anyone has tested it for quite some time.

There is currently work being done to port the 440BX code over to v2,
but this has proven to be a bit of a challenge.

This seems to be supported in LinuxBIOS v2 already.

Slot 1 isn't explicitly supported, but PGA370 is so it will probably
work out fine.

W83977TF is supported, but there is work also on boards with EF. The
two are very similar so this should not be a problem.

Yep, this is supported in the flashrom utility.

Overall you're in pretty good shape, except for the critical central
440BX northbridge. :)

Not completely supported today, but perhaps in the near future.
