Hi. One year after contributing the port to HP DL145 G1 motherboard code 
I decided to see if I could improve it a little. However, now I can't 
make it work. I still have my compiled rom image from August 2010 (and 
it works fine) but when I try to compile a new image I get all kinds of 

First I checked out and compiled the latest git-version of coreboot. The 
result: no output whatsoever on the serial console. Something is very 
broken and there is no clue.

Checking out the version just after my commit 2010-08-20 compiles and 
seems to boot, but depending on how much debugging messages I choose in 
"make menuconfig" I get different problems. Sometimes one of my two 
CPU's will not initialize. Sometimes I just get unexplicable lockups. 
More debugging messages seems to make it more stable.

Since I believe I tried exactly the same sourcecode as I did 
successfully use one year ago I suspect a bug in my toolchain. I use gcc 
4.5.1 and binutils 2.21. I think I used an older version last year.

Question1: is there any particular version of gcc/binutils that is 
recommended with coreboot? Any versions one should avoid?

Question2: is there any revision of coreboot after 2010-08-20 that is 
recommended to work well on amdk8 platforms?
