[coreboot] 690/600 Just starting out.

When we did our dbm690t, we set up a SVN server in our own server, which everyday work was submit to. When we think the work is good enough, we send a patch to the community. That is a little complicated, but I believe it is a good way.
Currently the SuperIO is not only configured in Config.lb, but also is included in cache_as_ram.c. Based on this code structure, it is difficult to make a single switch to decide which SuperIO we are using.
Everything makes its own sense. I believe you should make up a new directory in mainboard for each SuperIO.

I copied over dbm690t in both the mainboard and target directories to advantech/som-5781. I will be getting things to work in those directories.

The developer baseboard that I am using has an ITE chip on it whereas the release board will have a Winbond. I don't see any way to select at configuration time which SuperIO/Baseboard is connected. Would it make sense to implement a standard SuperIO interface and just link against the one we want? Would there be a need to support multiple SuperIO in the same system? Has there been any steps taken towards doing this? Any interest other than myself?> > The release baseboard is a custom embedded design so it doesn't really make sense to have a directory for it.
