+        movl    $CONFIG_XIP_ROM_BASE, %eax
+        orl     $MTRR_TYPE_WRBACK, %eax
         movl    $(CONFIG_XIP_ROM_BASE | MTRR_TYPE_WRBACK), %eax

This looks very odd... I'd see why you'd do the undef, given the next
patch, but why produce the register value at runtime?
Since this is not a CONFIG variable in tinybootblock, maybe it would
make sense to call it differently instead of undef'ing it?
I.e. AUTO_CALCULATED_XIP_ROM_BASE (or something better ;)

I guess this is needed for the patch above?
