Seems like Marc has found the reason in the other thread ("timeout
during PS/2 keyboard init") - should we get that fixed, I'd prefer to
keep the full init in coreboot unconditionally, even if it's 10-20ms.

Could you try with "[PATCH] timeout during PS/2 keyboard init"
(http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/1891/), if that gives an acceptable
boot time for you? (unless I misunderstand and your gripe isn't with the
overly long timeout we suffer on some chipsets, but with the time the
init takes at all, however tiny)
