It would have been nice to discuss some of these things first.

This is a fun one. I think the default here should be empty, and
should be overridden in suitable component Kconfigs.

Good. Loglevel should go in here as well.

I'm not so sure about this. There is a point in having these help
texts in the Kconfig structure.
It is becoming more and more clear to me that the upstream Kconfig
may not be completely sufficient for us on it's own.

Put the help message in the flag description. But maybe use
"coreboot message" rather than "coreboot debug output".

Override what? There is noone before us.

This should become a list of options.

This should probably be either "EHCI Debug Port" or
"USB Debug Class compliant device"

What is it that can use the VGA console? This setting is not really
about using VGA as console - or is it? Can anything actually ever be

Does this option have anything to do with the VGA BIOS stuff which is
in another place in Kconfig? One idea would be to move these things
together into the same menu.

So this should depend on something.

Does this need CONFIG_ prepended? Hopefully not.

Are more default lines needed here?
