Support For Old Hardware Is Being Removed From Coreboot
Coreboot developers are taking to their Git tree and dropping support for old motherboards and chipsets.
Yesterday saw the removal in Git of many Tyan motherboards as well as some from IWILL and Newisys and IBM.
Per the recent mailing list discussion, they are starting to remove code for obsolete/end-of-life motherboards and chipsets. Generally this is coming down to getting rid of hardware older than ten years or code that's not being maintained, such as the VIA code with VIA Technologies no longer appearing involved with Coreboot. Of course, thanks to Git, if you have a stake in any of the removed hardware you can always go back and fetch the older code.
Coreboot developers are also looking at ways to figure out what Coreboot code is actually still being used versus dormant motherboard ports.
