They're not supported yet, sorry. I haven't checked whether there are
public datasheets. Do you want to work on support for this chipset?

The Super I/O should be supported, but we haven't actually tested that
code on real hardware, yet.

If you're inclined you can give it a try (check whether you get serial
debugging output). Please note, that this is all you'll be able to
achieve at the moment, you will _not_ be able to really boot your system
as long as northbridge + southbridge don't work.

HTH, Uwe.
