Hi Jinyi,
Can you provide more details about your work as a BIOS engineer?

As Vladimir said, if the chipset is unsupported then writing MRC for it
will be a very long and difficult process. If the chipset is supported then
adding mainboard support may be a relatively simple task that not
sufficient for GSoC.

If you have experience with UEFI, perhaps you can implement features that
are missing in our Tianocore support: http://www.coreboot.org/TianoCore .
