Documentation is now handled by the same processes we use for code: Add something to the Documentation/ directory in the coreboot repo, and it will be rendered to https://doc.coreboot.org/. Contributions welcome!
This page explain the workings of the CMOS.layout file. The CMOS.layout file can be linked into a board specific environment. By creating the cmos.layout file in the board directory. and set the HAVE_OPTION_TABLE in the Kconfig file of the board.
The CMOS layout file must contain the following sections;
The hash (#) character is the comment prefix, all characters until the eof of line are treated as comment.
The checksums section has one variable with three parameters;
checksum <startbit> <endbit> <start-of-checksumbit>
The <startbit> parameter is the bit position where the calculation of the checksum starts from.
The <endbit> parameter is the bit position there the calculation of the checksum starts on.
The <start-of-checksumbit> parameter is the bit position there the checksum will be stored, there must be space for 16 bits of checksum data.
