as LinuxTag approaches and some of the systemd
developers are going to
be there, I remembered the discussion how systemd only supports exposing
performance data on EFI systems .
Christian already brought up coreboot/SeaBIOS in that discussion. H.
Peter Anvin (Syslinux) also voiced a need for a having that for non-EFI
Christin, are there any news?
The biggest problem is the defined interface between the coreboot and systemd.
Thanks to the CBMEM console, the cbmem utility can read, and the timer
work, we have performance data available now. If I am not mistaken,
Chrome OS also supports reading these values. So maybe such an interface
could be designed during LinuxTag and implemented afterward.
In the next weeks I will find some time for some coreboot work and maybe I will
get something up and running.
