[coreboot] [URGENT] Full List of AMD-based boards that are going to be removed from coreboot unless people cough up a board status update

There are a lot of nice AMD-based coreboot-supported boards which have
an outdated board_status and are at risk of removal. The majority of
these boards (with the exception of PC engines apu2//3//4//5) - do not
require a closed source AMD PSP binary to run, and ( also compared to
many Intel boards which require Intel ME proprietary binary ) these
AMD boards are highly user-controllable - some of them are even
supported by the libreboot project!

To avoid the possible removal of these wonderful boards, we need to
update their board_status. To upload your own report, check out
https://www.coreboot.org/Board_Status . See also
https://www.mail-archive.com/coreboot@coreboot.org/msg51438.html for a
way to review information prior to uploading it.

Although I am also CC'ing these message to the previous reporters,
maybe some of them do not have these boards at the moment - so, if you
still have any of these boards and still care about them - please do
not rely on others. We are waiting for your report
