Dear coreboot folks,

Intel has started to submit change sets adding support for the new
chipset Intel Kaby Lake [1].

> Kaby Lake is Intel's codename for the upcoming 14 nanometer successor
> to the Skylake microarchitecture. Kaby Lake began shipping to
> manufacturers and OEMs in the second quarter of 2016, though volume
> production for the retail channel is anticipated late-2016.
> Skylake was to be succeeded by the 10 nanometer Cannonlake, but it
> was announced on July 16, 2015, that Cannonlake has been delayed
> until the second half of 2017.

As it’s very similar to Intel Skylake, the goal is to adapt the Intel
Skylake code, so that it supports both chipsets. [2][3]
