Try building coreboot with crossgcc. just cd into util/crossgcc/ and
build crossgcc. The coreboot build system should automatically use it if
it's built.

Sounds like an IRQ issue to me.

Select the Seabios stable option in make menuconfig. It should at the
very least build seabios with console output, so we can see what seabios
has to say. (remember, with crossgcc).

Someone wiser (than me), please have a look at this error. I have no
idea why it happens, or what the implications are.

Output got truncated here. Please make sure output is not truncated, and
we also get the SeaBIOS part.
