Ok, looks like it just uses the default init. Also looks like I won't  
have to modify any coreboot core code to run the i2c-i810 after VGA is  
initialized. I can just setup a vga.c file in the northbridge for a  
custom vga init, and call it from there. Kind of like Corey did for  
the Via CN700, thanks Corey :-)

Thanks - Joe
