Not at present.

Corey has added support for C7+CN700 but I think he still wants to
add some finishing touches to that code.

8237RP - now what is that?

Rudolf has received the 8237R data sheet from VIA and I believe he is
working on adding support for it to coreboot. I don't know if that
will work for 8237RP as well.

Should not matter much with regard to coreboot.

SuperIO chip and flash chip is also interesting. Is there a
high-resolution photo of the board somewhere?
("Award 4MB Flash ROM" in the PDF does not say enough.)

It won't work out of the box right now I'm afraid. Once 8237R support
is in the tree you could start experimenting with the board. It might
come up on the first try. :)
