Target version:-


The bootblock part of a coreboot rom file should always remain at the end of the flash chip. However, running cbfstool coreboot.rom compact on the rom file relocates the bootblock so that it is followed by the free space.

Expected/suggested behaviour: Keep the bootblock at the end of the flash and relocate all free space right before it.

Some cbfsfiles need to be at a fixed offset, others need a certain alignment. compact could have some specific use cases but should generally not be used the main COREBOOT fmap region.
