when we did the first real CAR work MTRRs were not needed. I'm not
sure if they would be on the vortex. We might want to test the very
early CAR code and see how it goes. It's actually quite simple.

Also, let's just take it a little easy here. These are proposals,
nothing is ever perfect on first release, the world is not ending,
Google is not showing up at coreboot.org in skimasks and unmarked
uniforms ...

I think a fork would harm everyone, and would be destructive of our
common goals. Please remember that we are all trying to do the right
thing, and our different situations give us different perspectives.

Nobody is coming in here with bad motives. We're just trying to muddle
our way through the many demands of different stakeholders now that
coreboot, thanks to the efforts of some pretty dedicated people, has
become a runaway success.
