There is a new, Denx-independent branch of u-boot from Pengutronix which
we've been using on custom ARM based hardware: u-boot v2.
It has a few less features, but a considerably nicer design. And, the
Pengutronix folks seemed very interested to see it happen as a coreboot
payload. I think this would be a real improvement for both projects,
coreboot (nice and slim, standardized user interface, could replace
FILO) as well as u-boot (access to the x86 world without re-implementing
I had this on my TODO, but there's been too much other stuff so far. Yet
I would love to see this happen. Maybe we get the momentum together?
All the best,
