Sorry, i attached the patch file.
Reading the coreboot_ram file in the build direcory gives you the check
if the checksum of the table you build has a correct checksum. i added
this functionally about 6 months ago, but found a problem when searching
a file image for the $PIR prefix.

There was a problem when using the getpir utility with the
coreboot_ram file, basically removed the loop around the search
function, in the coreboot_ram image the start $PIR is not on a 16 byte
boundary. due to the search already was matching 6 bytes of the start
of the table (including the version of the table), this was not
necessary any more.
There was no patch attached
The copy in the coreboot_ram image is not the one the tool should find,
usually it should even be compressed and thus not found at all. Instead
coreboot_ram will copy a PIR table to ram and that copy is the one the
tool is/should be looking for.
