Probably not, the code hasn't been modified since 2011.

I would just get a KGPE-D16, then you can use OpenBMC (it is very nice 
to have) and benefit from the coreboot fam15h native init code that has 
IOMMU for 62xx and 63xx CPU's.

G34 vs C32 is potato potatoe (same thing)
If you want quad socket you could probably port either board to the 
native init code without much effort if you know what you are doing then 
gain IOMMU support (that AGESA has no IOMMU support, it will also be 
removed from coreboot soon due to some silly choices by the leadership 
meaning you wouldn't be able to use these boards on the future released 
versions even if they did work)
