Dear Quing Pei,

could you just test if X works please so that nobody wanting to buy that
board gets wrong expectations?


Is suspend/resume working?
Are all ports working (hard drive, USB, …)?
How long does coreboot + payload take on your board to load/initialize?

Some patches were committed tonight. Could you retest with them please?

A TODO would also be nice. ;-)

You can use the following Git commands to adapt your patch.

        cd pathtoyourgitcorebootfolder
Update the user information (just a suggestion).

        git config --global user.name Quingpei Wang (your Chinese spelling here)
Update all remote repositories.

        git fetch

Take a look at the changes.

        git log origin/master # where `origin` is the remote coreboot respository

Checkout your branch with your ASUS M5A88-V stuff.

        git branch # show all local branches
        git checkout m5a88 # substitude m5a88

Put your changes on top of the latest master.

        git rebase origin/master # if there are conflicts, but there should not

Update (amend) the commit message of the last commit to for example add
information, what you have tested.

        git commit --amend -s
If you also want to amend files, you have to add the changed file before

        git add yourfilewithtoamendedchanges
        git add --patch yourfilewithtoamendedchanges # only parts of the
        git commit --amend -s

        git commit -a --amend -s

If you also want to add commits prior to the list one.

        git rebase -i HEAD~8 # number of commits going back

If you need more information the manual pages are also quite good. For
example `git help rebase` opens the manual page for `git rebase`.
