GSoC 2013 was nice so I decided to apply again and hopefully continue on 
the same topic around debugging environment.

Enhance early coreboot debugging

Short description: The traditional way for coreboot developer to make a 
port for new mainboard is to add more messages on debug console and make 
changes until things worked. This approach is unusable for those 
community contributors who have no access to the full source of their 
coreboot system. My proposal attacks this problem by making SerialICE 
and/or remote GDB easily available early in coreboot, either over serial 
UART or USB EHCI debug, for most platforms from the coreboot supported 
mainboards -list.

Full proposal text is available for comments is here:
