[coreboot] Geode GX1 with VGA-enabled payload?

I am trying to remind myself what I need (or if it's even possible) to use a payload that makes use of VGA on a Geode GX1/CS5530 system. I'd like to have a bootloader payload that uses VGA instead of serial, if possible.
Now, I've got VGA enabled in the coreboot image I'm currently using, and I get the coreboot logo splash screen, but I'm still using a payload configured for COM1. Aside from changing payloads to one that uses VGA and PS/2 devices, what else is required? Am I required to have a VGA BIOS? I'm guessing that I am. Can someone confirm that that's what I need? If so, I remember seeing the tutorial somewhere on extracting the VGA BIOS and incorporating it in coreboot. Though, if someone has an up-to-date recipe for this, that'd be even better!
