Coreboot Now Has Native Graphics Initialization For Intel's GM45
The latest feature hitting mainline Coreboot is native graphics initialization support for the Intel GM45 chipset.
Vladimir Serbinenko has managed to get working native VGA initialization for the GM45 graphics that's hard-coded into Coreboot as an alternative to using the hardware's video BIOS for starting up the GMA graphics.
This "native gfx init" for the GM45 chipset was successfully used and tested by Vladimir on the new Coreboot support for the Lenovo ThinkPad X200.
The commit adding the support to Coreboot can be found via Git.
