I know of one more issue, coreboot.romfs as you mentioned.

Hm? grep gives me .svn/text-base/romfs.c.svn-base but nothing else.
What files do you see?

Yeah. This is a tricky one.

The coreboot.romfs filename is generated by the config tool for each
image, by appending 'fs' to the image name:
coreboot.rom becomes coreboot.romfs

I am unsure how to approach this, because I don't know the config
tool well enough.

Can someone comment on whether it's simply safe to change that to a
fixed coreboot.cbfs filename?
