I believe the SeaBIOS code is fully synched up with your code.  So, I
guess the only things left are the changes to coreboot.

It would be great if someone could enhance coreboot to have an option
for storing the bios tables in high memory or at 0xf0000.  We've had
to manually hardcode the top-of-ram in the src/arch/i386/boot/tables.c
file - I think this should be automatically done when the appropriate
option is set.
