[coreboot] Coreboot supports intel baytrail processor?

Hello Mario,

Please, could you download INTEL public document: http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/presentation/bldk-rapid-dev-presentation.pdf ?

There, on page 11 you can see what in nutshell BYT/any other FSP looks like: it is nothing more than SEC and PEI phases of EFI/UEFI BIOS (does initialization of the processor, chipset, memory - mrc). Tailored for the specific purposes. Coreboot comes on the top of this to initialize ACPI (PM), e1000 (net), VGA (video) etc. (more than outlined). And then passes control to its payload.

For BYT FSP you should go to your local INTEL Point of Contact, and request access to the restricted documents considering BYT FSP. I know that these are intensive INTEL activities to release Proof of Concept for BYT FSP with Coreboot. More I cannot reveal. All these you should ask your local INTEL representative. Policy of the company. Sorry...

Most of The Time you should be "intel inside" to be capable to think "out of the box".

Good day,

I'm also looking for information on the FSP to use it in the Bay Trail platform.

Done reading the documentation and wanted to know if you can answer the following questions:

- If the FSP does initialization processor, chipset, memory and Coreboot also does this, how to integrate the binary FSP within the structure of the Coreboot?

thank you,

I'm on the web site and hunting around and it seems, at present, to be
incomplete. Also, saying FSP is available in beta as an EDS (a spec)
makes no sense to me. Where's the FSP binary itself?

For instance, after passing through many links and looking at many
docs, I am here:

But all I can are documents, nice looking people, and links that have
nothing to do with FSP. Where do I go?

What are the redistribution rights on FSP? I assume we'll be able to
host the binary at coreboot.org as well as intel.com.
