Not have to. It should work like this too. Maybe you can try with some debug 
level - Seabios will maybe complain about acpi too. (it relocates just the RSDP, 
but in your case you have some there) Maybe it is wrong...

To me it seems that the RSDP which is orginal from Coreboot, points to some 
bogus place. Maybe using SeaBIOS will fix that, because SeaBIOS rewrites the 
RSDP pointer.

Check/compare the table addresses in the serial debug messages and from
