[coreboot] SuperMicro h8dmr-i2 slowness in v4

I'm having some trouble with current releases of coreboot on a
Supermicro H8DMR-i2.

The initial problem, it takes about 2 minutes to show the:
"coreboot-4.0-r5775 Fri Sep  3 14:55:01 CDT 2010 starting..."
and equally as long after the warm reset.

The second, the system freezes at "Clearning initial memory region:" for
about a half hour before proceeding.  After that, everything works as

There has been some list chatter about a similar problem with the H8DME,
but that was based upon the H8DMR code so it's odd that it found it's
way here.  I've attached the full serial output if that's at all useful.

Vendor: Supermicro
MainBoard: H8DMR-i2
NorthVBridge: Fam10h
SouthBridge: NVIDIA MCP55
Super I/O: Winbond™ W83627EHG
CPU: AMD Opteron

Any suggestions are welcome, TIA,
Nicholas Lemberger
