seems like it was quite silent around these board in the mailing list
except my emails.
the first rom i test was send me by vidwer at gmail.com it was labeled
coreboot_asus_f2a85-m_1532513585.rom .. i dont know if this is the
commit code of it.
this one was working it think also with IOMMU but it was not able to
drive a radeon addon card.
Does someone no who was working on this boards first .. in the past the
original developer of a port could help me with some problems.
