I'm not sure what I could do to help on this. I've no idea when it comes to
this sort of stuff. I could give it a go, if I knew what it was I needed
The Super I/O should be supported, but we haven't actually tested that

If I try it out, can I revert to my old BIOS if it doesn't work? Or is it a
case of not actually flashing the BIOS, but running some sort of
diagnostic? Again, I've no idea, I just came across this as I use Linux,
and figured would be nice.
