[coreboot] Ability to remotely debug the grub menu in case of boot failure

If a coreboot compatible motherboard is used and the right
coreboot+plugins flashed, is there a way that can be used to view the
linux terminal console during boot time in order to remotely
debug/troubleshoot any grub level bootup issues (before the SSH or any
other such daemon can load)?

All the solutions I see so far seem to be proprietary to Intel and
require Server motherboards.

Since coreboot has a network debug log sending option, it stands to
reason that it could theoretically connecting a terminal console over
a compatible ethernet card?

Thoughts anyone? Apologies if this has been asked but mailman does not
make it easy to search archives.
