I saw this announced on freshmeat:


I guess it's not terribly interesting to coreboot (which already does serial 
output, right?).

What might be interesting is there's a negotiation stage where a serial device 
tells the BIOS what dimensions it would prefer.  This might be useful for 
libpayload, when running on headless machines, to adjust its output to match 
that of the serial device.
