The thing is that coreboot is useless without some kind of payload. The
bigggest part of effort of making coreboot-based firmware work on
Loongson is porting the payload as the job of coreboot on this platform
is reduced to mere 1000-2000 lines. At this the payload could simply be
linked with fwstart.S and I was going to propose sharing this code with
the other payload if other payload is willing to port and maintain
Loongson. But for this I need the answers to questions I asked and
everybody avoids answering.
