How about the following statement:
"We are supporting quite a few Intel CPUs and chipsets, but datasheets
for newer Intel chipsets are very difficult to get. If you have a good
business case, you can always try to convince Intel to release the
datasheets for the chipset you are using. The coreboot team would be
delighted to see that happen. Once we have the docs, we can help you
port coreboot to these chipsets."
