Some time ago, I found in documentation how to make add new target (mainboard), but now I can't find it anymore. Can you please point me to some documentations dealing with this process (creating Kconfig, devicetree.cb, ...)?

A lot of stuff has moved around recently as coreboot has gone to v4
and we are behind in our documentation. Start with the most recent
build how to, http://www.coreboot.org/Build_HOWTO, and
http://www.coreboot.org/Coreboot_Options, and . Older porting guides
will help you with the device setup. Ask questions in IRC #coreboot on
freenode.  It would be a big help if you were to document your
experience porting this platform.
