I think that having OEM BIOS logs from supported
boards does make a
lot of sense, but when I talked to Stefan about it before, he didn't
want to add unsupported boards. His thinking was that we didn't want
to be the world's largest lspci database
Right, I didn't think about this
Given the amount of effort needed to port coreboot to new chipsets,
how big would such database be, if we limit it to chipsets we support.
For instance northbridges and southbridges (if it applies).
We could also want to only whitelist specific chipset combinations
Example1: We might want some information on Lenovo Thinkpad laptops with
supported northbridge and southbridge.
Example2: Someone is looking for hardware with specific requirements to
do a port.
In both examples, the submission script will whitelist that combination.
