I noticed that ite871x has watchdog. You can try to kill the watchdog
like the

what it8712 does.

Subject: [coreboot] Gigabyte SuperIO problems


hi all,
    since it's old topic, but i would like to arise this again. I am
trying to port coreboot to two gigabyte mainboard. both of them have the
same superIO ITE8718, one of the board is GA-MA78GM-UD2H . 
it is an 780+700+DDR2 mainboard, which is much similar with AMD
The confusing things now is after the ITE8718 init, it continues reboot.
This caused me thinking about the difference of ITE8718 between MA78GM
and mahogany. Gigabyte may did some special hardware(or
register)configuration to ITE8718. Is there any one who tried to port
coreboot to Gigabyte dual bios mainboards? 

   I found your mail in flashrom mail list, it seems that you had the
experience about the gigabyte dual bios things. Have you have any
suggestion about my problems?
