Inteltool from Coreboot

I am doing some work trying to add Core i7 support to the inteltool utility from the Coreboot project.

Core i7 is very different from the previous intel chipsets, and figuring out how to represent some of the stuff in inteltool's view of the world is a challenge. The main problem I am facing right now is that inteltool thinks the northbridge chip contains the memory controller. However, in i7, that functionality has been moved into a PCI device on the processor itself. I am still trying to figure out a solution.
