I have an almost-finished (and untested, yet) patch lingering on my drive
for a few weeks now for the 440BX RAM init, which adds generic SPD
functions in lib/spd.c and some 440BX-specific stuff in the resp. raminit.c.
Will post soon.

Another patch I have here (just needs some small fixes, but an older
version is still in the list archives, I posted it months ago) for the
82371EB southbridge which the 440BX boards use. I'll finish up that one
first an post it after a few tests.
