Hi. One year after contributing the port to HP DL145 G1 motherboard code 
I decided to see if I could improve it a little. However, now I can't 
make it work. I still have my compiled rom image from August 2010 (and 
it works fine) but when I try to compile a new image I get all kinds of 

Checking out and compiling the latest git-version of coreboot yields no 
output whatsoever on the serial console. Something is definitely very 
broken and there is no clue.

Checking out the version just after my commit 2010-08-20 compiles and 
seems to boot, but depending on how much debugging messages I choose in 
"make menuconfig" I get different problems such as just one of my two 
CPU's initializing, or just strange lockups. In general more debugging 
messages makes it more stable.

Since I believe I tried exactly the same sourcecode as I did 
successfully use one year ago I suspect something changed in my 
toolchain. I now use gcc 4.5.1 and binutils 2.21. I think I used an 
older version last year.

Question1: is there any known version of gcc/binutils that is known to 
work well with coreboot?
Question2: is there any known revision of coreboot after 2010-08-20 that 
is known to work well on amdk8 platforms?
