There is no mistake here. The change was only a little ahead of its
time. There was limited support for non-VGA option ROMs but that was
not working well and SeaBIOS has better support for it. Since [1],
coreboot only executes the option ROMs of VGA devices. The later
changes you noticed only fix the Kconfig options to reflect that.

So if you need non-VGA option ROMs, consider using SeaBIOS.

You are free to contribute. And if you had listened in the last discus-
sion about our sign-off procedure, you would know that even you can do
so without sacrifice.
