Since my last post on it (29th Sept) (where I asked the question of
whether LinuxBIOS is used) I have read more: the following article
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=NjEwNw says it is a
combination of Linux and "proprietary" bits, although I found the
article a little confusing (CE is proprietary, and later CS is Linux +
some other stuff).

If anyone is interested here is my collection of links on it:
