I think it can be done.

Create some new board options for the relevant parameters.

This is just a subset of the above, right?

Is this not in SPD?

Because of pin multiplexing you mean? Make the relevant PMRs options
(I think they should be anyway) and teach raminit how to decode them
ss it knows how to do SPD.
