[coreboot] Equus "WHITEBOX OPEN" servers ship with Coreboot/LinuxBoot

I'm calling shenanigans on this. Their server datasheets pretty clearly
specify an IBV-provided firmware solution, definitely NOT coreboot or
LinuxBoot and definitely NOT open. I did hear thru the grapevine that
they've been in contact with at least one OpenBMC developer, at least.

So basically this is a lot of misleading marketing BS AFAICT (though I'd
like to be proven wrong).
