FYI I would caution against trying to use the PIKE slot on KCMA-D8, I tried using a PIKE2008 in it but could never get it to enumerate properly i.e. the card is detected by coreboot and Linux but it doesn't get any addresses assigned to it by the kernel rendering it unusable.
I use this card in a KGPE-D16 now so it's not the card that's broken, could be that something was wrong with my D8. Regardless I tried to bisect this back to when D8 support was initially introduced in coreboot and as far as I could tell the PIKE slot never worked on D8.
@Taiidan have you ever actually seen (or head of) the PIKE slot working on D8?
