Hi Marc,
My workmate has use the newest coreboot(download from svn) to load
bayou.elf(include seabios and coreinfo in it)  and it worked, but it is
based on qemu and without CBFS. So maybe your concern of CBFS is right,

Has Bayou been updated to work with CBFS? I think that the payload
name in the xml should match the name as printed by "cbfstool
coreboot.rom print'.
