thank you again for your awesome work! Could you add the log stuff
somewhere, please? For example the Wiki [1] or a message to this list.

I do *not* have this board. A friend of mine has one. Though he is not
capable to test anything.

That’s strange. What Linux kernel do you use? Do you get any error

No idea. As you know already, according to Jens the Verb Table format is
undocumented and Realtek does not give out any information [2].

What chip do you have? Realtek ALC887? At least that is what searching
for »f2a85-m realtek alc« seems to suggest.

What SeaBIOS version do you use?
