]That there aren't any binary components in the tree is simply for the fact

Thanks for explaining. I always wondered why uma video option roms were
not included with coreboot. Microcode patches should be put into this
same category. The supplied AMD patches are not the latest, if I am not
mistaken. It wouldn't be hard to automate the process of extracting AMD
patches from a BIOS binary.
