[LinuxBIOS] Support for some more SuperIOs/old Chipsets

i just subscribed to the mailing list and i need a speedup on the
development of LinuxBIOSv2 as i want to contribute some code. I thought
of some SuperIO chips i still have docs for, maybe completing some of
the code already written (there are a lot of TODOs in the code). Finally
i'm thinking of contributing code for some older chipsets (ALi socket7,
VIA socket7, intel socket7) and maybe cpus (cyrix 6x86 family, amd k6
familiy, intel pentium (mmx)) as i think those boards deserve a fast
booting bios without too much useless stuff in there.
i didn't took a deep look into the api yet. so i still have a lot of
questions: where should i start? Chipsets and CPUs or rather some
SuperIO stuff? and what i really need to know is: where is the
configuration done? let's say ram timings (no spd on edo/fpm), superIO
settings, etc. (there are a lot other chipset tweaks that could be applied).
btw. currently i'm working as a developer for embedded automotive
systems, so i hope i can help with some code.
