 That sounds ok. I copied over dbm690t in both the mainboard and target directories to advantech/som-5781. I will be getting things to work in those directories. Should I submit a non-working patch to get things started? 

The som-5781 is com-express so the SuperIO lives on the baseboard. The developer baseboard that I am using has an ITE chip on it whereas the release board will have a Winbond. I don't see any way to select at configuration time which SuperIO/Baseboard is connected. Would it make sense to implement a standard SuperIO interface and just link against the one we want? Would there be a need to support multiple SuperIO in the same system? Has there been any steps taken towards doing this? Any interest other than myself?

The release baseboard is a custom embedded design so it doesn't really make sense to have a directory for it. Thoughts on how to handle this?
