[coreboot] Interesting (part of) article.

If you can make Coreboot work well on an AMD 690G, I can talk to them about
it. One thing that would be important though, is having CPU multiplier,
voltages and other similar types of controls working, similarly to vendor's
In either way, I have Kristopher Kubicki's contact, if not the guys at
Anandtech, maybe he can publish something in Dailytech.
I also have a PR contact at Biostar, I'll see if he has any interest in
having the engineers look at Coreboot, when I have some time - still, it
would be better to have a 690g port working before talking to them. They
have plenty of 690G boards at Biostar, to try it in.

Best regards,
