== Native graphics init ==
Implement native initialization of the graphics hardware (probably AMD or Intel) so no Video BIOS is needed.
This should be added in a maintainable way, that means that updates in the Linux code, if that is used to build upon, can be easily integrated. The code needs to be structured in such a way, that at least for a certain generation other boards can use native graphics initialization.
A test and performance possibility, like a payload testing the correct initialization, needs to be added too.
This could be done in combination with making a board port.
