Not been around for a while, but noticed this come by.

Seems to me that this config is pretty much identicle to my epia-n
i.e. VIA EDEN ESP (C3) + Via CN400 + VT8237R +	W83627HG

There's not much difference between the CN400 and CLE266 so something
based on that config may just work without too much tweaking.

I've not built from svn for a long time and I don't remember if my final
patches ever got committed to the upstream. But in the final incarnation
my build was working well and had CBFS and optional SeaBIOS support. 

My recollection is that there's a hardwired smbus address buried in
there somewhere that you might have to tweak for your MoBo to
successfully get through the raminit.
