This all sounds fine from a developer's perspective, but what about AMD's
customers? I honestly have no clue if the decision to use an AMD product
with coreboot hinges on whether AMD's supplied AGESA code is used or not.
But I can imagine ripping out the AMD-supplied code might make it difficult
for AMD to support customers who use coreboot.

I'm sure there are people on this list who _have actually supported
customers_ using AMD products and coreboot, so I'd like to hear their

/my $0.02.
