Can you elaborate? I think I never heard of legacybios so far. What's
the purpose and history and relation to ADLO of that? Does it _replace_
ADLO completely or enhance it or... ? Also, from a quick glance it
doesn't seem to be written specifically for coreboot, what's the
original purpose (just curious)?

Do you have a comparison between ADLO as in v2 svn vs. legacybios?

Also note that legacybios is GPLv3, not sure if that's a problem
for us. Do we link GPLv2 code against that?

Thanks, Uwe.
