It was easy to identify once I took off the cover. The PCI bridge is
made by V3 Semiconductor (now a part of QuickLogic?), part number
V32OUSC-75LP (Rev. B1):
Is this the one called "Galileo"?
There's also two RS-232 line drivers/receivers, MAX3185 made by Maxim
(now part of Dallas Semiconductor) and some nearby Samsung parts that
I suppose are probably UARTs (this thing has two serial ports). I
would guess that getting something to come out on a serial console is
going to be my first step.
Digitally signed images and bootloaders that enforce them sounds
particularly nasty. That's a show stopper for me, if it turns out to
be that way.
