Coreboot Sandy/Ivy Bridge Gains Native RAM Initialization

The latest addition to Coreboot is native RAM initialization support for Intel's Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge families.

One of Intel's hold-backs from open Coreboot contributions was native "raminit" support but now through work by Coreboot developers and hardware tracing, native RAM initialization support has hit Git.

Of course, the range of supported Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge motherboards out there supporting Coreboot is still limited, but at least the work is moving forward.
