Hi everyone,

Whilst playing around with openbios to try and understand how it works 
on different platforms, I found that using coreboot-v3 with openbios SVN 
causes openbios to panic on boot under qemu SVN. The trace can be found 


With the help of some people on the coreboot mailing list, I've 
performed an SVN bisection and found that the panic starts appearing at 
r416 in openbios SVN for which the commit message can be found here:


However, I can't find any reference to the rationale behind the commit. 
Can anyone explain further explain whether is commit is correct or not? 
It would be really helpful if you could CC replies to the coreboot 
mailing list to help resolve this - the original thread can be found here:


Many thanks,
