I will gladly take the time if someone is actually using those boards ;-)

Here's what I did:

I switched all those boards to use Cache As Ram. I copied the
cache_as_ram_auto.c (what a name!) from another board and adjusted 
the following settings:

 * number of CPUs and
 * Addresses of SPD on i2c
 * SuperIO 
 * memreset functions

As a side note this was an interesting practice for v3. The above
settings are what distinguishes the K8 autobuilds. 

So if we can abstract those properly, we can drop the requirement for
writing code to support a mainboard. (amongst other things that come
later, ACPI/PIRQ etc which should go to DTS anyways)
