It really is a raminit issue. I tested with a 800MHz fsb (does not even get
to ramstage) and a 533MHz fsb cpu which just works (this is a 1067fsb cpu with
tape on bsel0 pin to make it select 533fsb). So unless 945gc raminit
gets fixed, this port is quite useless.
This i945 raminit.c seems to have a lot of code specific for 667fsb
(laptops only) and 533fsb (Intel d945gclf atom board).
I guess I'll have to run vendor through serialICE and see how MCHBARS are configured
with inteltool with 800fsb and 1067fsb cpus.
