I hint you to the SC520 manuals on AMDs web page.

Absolutely my point. This is why the current state is possibly the best
it can get in this regard.
We won't drop coreboot support for sc520 either, just because the
default case (ie. compiling a K8 or LX target) does not include that
code (.. since many years)
That code worked fine when I last tested it last year, so there's
absolutely no reason to remove it.
