Hi all,
    I'm currently reading the source code of flashrom (linux version). I
found this linuxbios_init(void) function. What is the purpose of this
I see that it checks the lb_header and lb_record of the BIOS binary in
the flash ROM chip. I suppose that this function works particularly for
motherboards already
equipped with linuxbios. Am I right? And for motherboard that contains
other vendor BIOS, it plainly "returns". Is that correct?
