[PATCH v2 0/4] x86: Improve support for chain-loading U-Boot

This little series adds a few checks into the code to allow better
operation when booting a build from a previous-state loader such as

At present we have a 'coreboot' target but this runs very different code
from the bare-metal targets, such as coral. There is very little in common
between them.

It is useful to be able to boot the same U-Boot on a device, with or
without a first-stage bootloader. For example, with chromebook_coral, it
is helpful for testing to be able to boot the same U-Boot (complete with
FSP) on bare metal and from coreboot. It allows checking of things like
CPU speed, comparing registers, ACPI tables and the like.

The idea is to change ll_boot_init() to false, and rebuild without changing
anything else.

This series makes the most important changes to allow coral to boot on

Changes in v2:
- Drop the other check in interrupt_init() which is not needed now
- Drop patch 'dm: Avoid initing built-in devices when chain loading'

Simon Glass (4):
  x86: fsp: Allow skipping init code when chain loading
  x86: apl: Skip init code when chain loading
  x86: cpu: Skip init code when chain loading
  pci: Avoid auto-config when chain loading
