Thanks, added to the wiki. This LKML post has created lots of press,
I'll add more articles to the wiki later...
It was a bit early, though, as we don't really have the code ready in svn

Yeah, that will prevent many people from actually using LinuxBIOS on
that board, I'm afraid.
Yinghai, did you solder off the chip for developing/debugging or did you
have another way to (re)flash the board in case of errors? Or is there a
variant of the board with a BIOS chip which is not soldered on?

Two patches are missing:
This just needs one more Ack from someone so it can be committed.
The code should work just fine.
This one needs more work, I think, as it contains left-over cruft
from older revisions. Also, it's missing license headers.
