NET20DC, it is the simplest, the cheapest by far and will work.

It is only relevant for debugging Windows using the kernel debugger, as 
that is not what you are doing you can ignore those requirements.
As for debugging coreboot I believe that it is supposed to work but I 
have not tried it myself so cannot tell you how functional the support 
actually is.
