Yes, he is. This has the potential to get quite a lot of people started
and getting any output at all is a major motivation factor even if the
rest of the code for bringup has yet to be written.

Can we build a ROM which does nothing but execute early serial code
for a given SuperIO, prints a few messages and then halts? So that if
somebody knows the SuperIO on his mainboard he can build a ROM testing
the code we have for it? Or does the early serial code also depend on
