I'm not aware of much overlap. As I understand it, coreboot mostly
deals with low-level hardware initialization. The bochs-bios was
designed to be used in an emulator and thus doesn't really bother with
Most of what is in the bochs-bios deals with implementing the legacy
bios software interrupts, building of the memory bios tables, and
loading of the OS from floppy/harddrive.
Am I missing something?
