Keep in mind that libpayload (note the name) is a distinct codebase
from coreboot and that libpayload is BSD licensed, so that custom
payloads can use it without the requirement to release them as open
source. The payload (FILO or whatever) is never linked with coreboot,
but is stored as a separate file in the flash chip, so this all works
fine wrt the GPL.
