 It would be nice if we could test coreboot images in VirtualBox, see

 VirtualBox does not (yet) provide a simple mechanism to use a different
 BIOS in their emulated machines (something like "-L" in qemu). Instead the
 BIOS image (a custom bochs BIOS + LGPL'g VGABIOS) is converted to C code
 (an array of bytes, or the like) and merged into the VirtualBox

 The relevant files are
 if someone want to hack VirtualBox to easily support using coreboot images
 instead of their usual BIOS.
