Basically, if the chipset (north-/southbridge) is supported, the first
step in trying to port LB to the mainboard is running superiotool so you
can find out the correct settings for early serial output.

Motherboard model and if possible the numbers printed on top of the
Super I/O chip.

We can then locate the right data sheet and give it either to you or add
support for the part to superiotool ourselves.
