I just committed my framework for the Asus P2B.  Hopefully it works
for you.  It should come up and try to dump the contents of the SPD on
the RAM. But like I said its broken even without the Asus magic.  I'm
going to try and work on that today and see if I can discover

So step one for P2B is to work with the board booted under factory
BIOS and see if we can figure out what GPIO is used to enable the
memory SMbus.

2.6 kernels know how to dump the SPD for a i440bx so see if you can do
that.  If that works then we just need to start comparing a
northbridge dump of the Asus vs a non-asus 440bx and see if any of the
GPIO are different.
