I don't know much and can't speak for coreboot, but have you looked
at free bootloaders for ARM ? I thought coreboot was centered in x86
because it was a popular arquitecure and it usually lacks free firmware,
while ARM or MIPS are most often used with free bootloaders already.
Might it be better to add PCIe (if not present) to one of those, say U-boot
or something ?
What would be the advantages of porting coreboot to ARM ?
