I didn't need to do anything for tinybootblock beyond adding "select
TINY_BOOTBLOCK" to epia-cn/Kconfig.

The PSON gating was:

--- src/southbridge/via/vt8237r/vt8237r_early_smbus.c   (revision 5486)

+            ;
         * 7 = SMBus Clock from RTC 32.768KHz
         * 5 = Internal PLL reset from susp

But it should probably have a timeout added.  I've been meaning to
clean these things up, but I haven't had the chance.
