Well, we're now up to 2 different implementations of support for
nVidia MCP55 chipsets (Yinghai's and mine), both of which await the
blessing of nVidia's legal department, because they were developed
using nVidia's confidential datasheets.

I suggest that anyone who wants to use LinuxBIOS on an MCP55-based
motherboard have a chat with an nVidia representative and explain the
situation in terms they understand, i.e. no LinuxBIOS == no sale.
