[coreboot] [PATCH] wipe GPL incompatible code

some illegal code snippets accidently made it into coreboot.

The code explicitly says:

Copyright 2005 ADVANCED MICRO DEVICES, INC. All Rights Reserved. This
software and any related documentation (the "Materials") are the
confidential proprietary information of AMD. Unless otherwise provided
in a software agreement specifically licensing the Materials, the
Materials are provided in confidence and may not be distributed,
modified, or reproduced in whole or in part by any means.

That is absolutely clear.

So the code must be removed. Sorry folks. No more ACPI and microcode
loading on K8 until someone writes a free version.

Best regards,
Stefan Reinauer
