I don't know the AMD format, what i propose is take the easier format
for kernel side.
If it's not amd we can do a tools to convert from blob to amd in userspace.

blob format is something like:
u32 type
u32 id
u32 size (dword aligned)
data (dword aligned)

So it's very primitive. I am finishing patch to do that will send it shortly.
