Subject: [coreboot] E350M1 does not POST
Upon booting, I get this:
you could try commit 0df0e14fb, that may or may not work, the
that broke fusion boards completely, apparently.
Thank you! I can confirm that 0df0e14fb works properly.
It looks like we have a regression. Is there some dependency on the
other patches that have not yet been committed?
Unfortunately git bisect is no help here because the commit which
the regression was a huge one.
It's important that large patches are broken down into a set of small
comprehensible patches, each with an explanatory commit message.
<<quote from git-bisect-lk2009.html documentation>>
sometimes "interesting" changes of behavior in the software are
introduced in some commits.
In fact people are specially interested in commits that introduce a
"bad" behavior, called a bug or a regression. They are interested in
these commits because a commit (hopefully) contains a very small set
of source code changes. And it's much easier to understand and
properly fix a problem when you only need to check a very small set of
changes, than when you don't know where look in the first place.
So to help people find commits that introduce a "bad" behavior, the
"git bisect" set of commands was invented.
Since commit 84cbce2 cause E350M1 not POST,
Following patches should resolve this regression problem, please see the
attachment in detail.
I have test it on a Persimmon mainboard,
anybody can have a test on E350M1?
