right, but the enable ENABLES the timeout. Safest thing to do is wait
until stage 2 at least to enable such things. I.e. later.

Although I see your point now. Sigh. mainboard_pre_payload?

We're finding that the device tree needs to span stage1 to
mainboard_pre_payload, now. We had not planned for this. We're going
to have to rethink it a bit.

If we do this it will clean a lot of things up.

Good work for denver.
