modules has the intel ICH7-M southbridge.
I'd say the best way forward is to diagnose this with the help of
superiotool. Make sure the w83627hf kernel module is not loaded
automatically, then run superiotool -dV and compare the outputs. If
superiotool finds your SuperIO only on one of the boards, you most
likely have a southbridge resource configuration problem which needs to
be addresses by the BIOS manufacturer (or a custom early kernel driver).
I'm very interested in the steps the BIOS takes in order to do the
resource configuration. Can you point me to the coreboot files where these
steps are done, specifically I'm interested in the ICH7-M chipset, the one
present in all my com express modules, and the steps to initialize the
superio hardware monitor.
