Hey coreboot folks,
I'm looking for an approach to make building Chrome OS style coreboot images easier to do with regular coreboot tools, instead of the rather large post-processing pipeline we have in the Chrome OS build system.
The rationale is that we also push the Chrome OS capabilities (eg. verified boot) upstream, and actually using them shouldn't depend on checking out yet another custom build environment.
I wrote a proposal on how to do that, which can be found and commented at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1o2bFl5HCHDFPccQsOwa-75A8TWojjFiGK3r0yeIc...
If this is to be implemented, I'd do that as part of coreboot's build system, and work on supporting the regular image types (with a "simple" bootblock and a fallback/normal switch configuration) we currently have.
I appreciate comments and concerns how this fits in with other use cases.
