The longer time is expected on the first boot. After that this should not take that long.
If every boot takes that long please check if the MRC information is preserved in flash
and properly restored before making the FSP call.

Hi fellow engineers,
I got that RAM stick working when I changed the fourth byte of SPD from from mini-UDIMM
(0x06) to SO-DIMM (0x03) and its working fine... But still I am curious why mini-UDIMM
didn't work out. Perhaps this form factor was not supported by FSP?
Another thing I observed that the call to FSP_FSP_INIT takes 7-8 seconds to return back.
Is that expected? What could be the possible ways to optimize it (even an inflexible
solution is welcome). The total boot time from power-on to loading payload is around 20
seconds with logs disabled.
