Yep, Coreboot is working fine and you're squarely in kernel mode at this
point. Make sure you have all the requisite serial driver support compiled
statically into your kernel (Device Drivers --> Character Devices --> Serial
Drivers) so you can see the kernel messages.

Copy your system image to your storage media (compact flash?) as you
normally would and try it out with the vendor BIOS first to verify that the
system image + kernel work fine on real hardware. If you're comfortable with
the QEMU trial results, and you have a sane way of recovering the vendor
BIOS, use flashrom to burn the new Coreboot image to the firmware ROM.
