Dear coreboot folks,

Alexandru put wood behind the arrow to get coreboot running on an AMD
based laptop. He took his old HP Pavilion m6-1035dx [1] and in a
day/night had coreboot running on it and he submitted the patch set for
review [2]!

Congrats to being, to my knowledge, the first to get coreboot running on
an AMD based laptop! Also big thanks to AMD and Sage Electronic
Engineering LLC [3] for providing code and support for AMD stuff! Also
thanks to Google for contributing code for the COMPAL ENE932 Embedded
Controller [4].

So reviewers and help in getting the non-working stuff to work are
greatly appreciated.

Bad for Alex that he now has to deal with AGESA and get for example
CBMEM console working with it for romstage or to refactor the code to be
more maintainable. :P
