When you replace the stock (AMI)BIOS with coreboot, do you stick to
supermicro's memory QVL ('Tested Memory List') or will/can agesa code
handle any (non-)registered (non-)ECC (unbuffered) DIMM?
I've investigated H8SGL and H8SCM (single processor, either with or
without IPMI), the last one already already is supported by coreboot.
