Facebook has been developing OpenBMC for several Intel host CPU boards
using AST2400. But not for Piestewa Peak Customer Reference board. As
Patrick mentioned, "The AST2400 itself is
host-processor agnostic, so it probably wouldn't be much trouble to get
it running on that board."
Facebook OpenBMC repo is at http://github.com/facebook/openbmc. We are
working with IBM team to have common Linux kernel and u-boot.
