If you already have the hardware to test with (bios savior or extra
chips) try creating a target and using winbond w83977tf (ie just tell
linuxbios that's what it is). From a quick look at the source, it
doesn't seem there is anything that should block it from working. Even
if it doesn't work, but everything else works, VGA and USB should still
work, unless a failed superio causes it to hang, but again looking at
the source it doesn't seem it should. You just won't have any serial or
PS/2 ports until you do get it working.
