We maintain GPL V2 compatibility as this is a blob that is placed into
cbfs. There is no linking.

I don't see it as different from what we do today with microcode,
which has been in the coreboot tree for many years now. While that
code is in "source" form in some sense, it really is a binary blob. We
would not have wanted to force people to maintain all that as as
separate repo.

Hope that helps. I'd like to make sandybridge support as convenient as possible.
