If that file is effectively the entire work, then I think it could
definately have the same name as the project/repo/directory.

On the other hand, it is of course expected to have descriptive
file names, which makes biosemu.c a good name for a file doing BIOS
emulation in any case.

However - would it not be desirable to unify enough code so that you
can use the same repo both for SLOF and coreboot?

It could go into Kconfig but users should not be bothered with it.
Maybe make it changeable for experts only.

Or implement an algorithm in code that looks at available memory and
navigates around any reserved areas. I like that better.
