Is in.

No comment - I don't have any chip driver fixes pending.

My board enables:

Abit IP35 Pro: http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/843/
 - Board enable works, but we have one report that the BIOS backflashes
itself. No idea what happens.

Abit VT6X4: http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/955/ depending on
 - Board enable works: http://coreboot.pastebin.com/f6fd7daa3
IMHO ready for commit. Review of the 948 appreciated.

HP Vectra VL420SFF: http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/919/
 - Board enable works, but DMI identifier was not tested. Confirmation
for non-DMI is at http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/696/

Intel SE440BX-2: http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/842/
 - Board enable does not work. GPO register on PIIX4 is for strange
reasons read-only, see

HP Vectra VL400: http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/721/
 - Board enable works, I was unsure about match quality. But
http://pastebin.com/f6c509179 claims that both IDs I used for matching
are really VL400 specific.

Asus M2NBP-VM CSM: http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/717/
 - Board enable works, only confirmation was on IRC. No response on

MSI MS7207: http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/659/
 - Untested. User got impatient and used another way of flashing - no
response on ping.

[x] seconded!

Improved suggestion: If flash contents changed, blindly write the old
image (without verifying during write), and if correct afterwards, also
don't bail out. This should help on partly write protected chips.
