    ELOG: Add support for a monotonic boot counter in CMOS
    This maintains a 32bit monotonically increasing boot counter
    that is stored in CMOS and logged on every non-S3 boot when
    the event log is initialized.
    In CMOS the count is prefixed with a 16bit signature and
    appended with a 16bit checksum.
    This counter is incremented in sandybridge early_init which is
    called by romstage.  It is incremented early in order notice
    when reboots happen after memory init.
    The counter is then logged when ELOG is initialized and will
    store the boot count as part of a 'System boot; event.
    Reboot a few times and look for 'System boot' events in the
    event log and check that they are increasing.  Also verify
    that the counter does NOT increase when resuming from S3.
