You're confusing things.  Coreboot is not a replacement for PMON2000, i.e. it's
not a bootloader.  What coreboot does is the pre-boot initialisation of
hardware that happens behind the scenes.

If coreboot supported the yeeloong, that'd make it easier to port other
bootloaders to it, like GNU GRUB.
