Some BSD make BIOS calls and may not work with Coreboot.

/*****  *******
We have tested some of the BSD OSes and have seen, that FreeBSD for example 
makes BIOS calls, which is not supported by coreboot. Possibly with help of 
SeaBIOS, it may be possible to boot FreeBSD like it is now, but the right 
thing to do, is to remove FreeBSD's dependence on BIOS calls.
Please feel free to test booting any of the above using SeaBIOS and report to 
the coreboot mailing list.

Have you tried a Grub2 chainload, with Grub2 as the payload for libreboot?

Best of luck.
