I think i've made the comment elsewhere but:
1) is there source available for the ROM code?
2) why are we calling it rather than our own SHA512 code?
3) why would we not verify the ROM code result against a local SHA512

Are future processors going to follow this model? If not, then let's
just bring in the SHA512 code now and be done with it rather than carry
