Hm, ROM-BIOS target, interesting :) Does it produce a complete ISA/PCI ROM module with necessary headers or just a code that can run from ROM? Coreboot project used its ROMC that enable you to write a bootblock in C because it doesn't require any RAM/stack (it's necessary before MCH is initialized). All vars are allocated in registers. So this makes of course several limitations but avoid asm...
