slimboot bios code coverage

I am attempting to use parasoft code coverage for slimboot bios

it appears that code code coverage requires a test app to run on the target which makes use of a runtime library. Since slimboot is a bios. I do not know how to make that work. The slimboot build process produces a binary that must be combined with opaque object to produce an image that will function to boot a OS. This process is similar to bare metal code but with significant differences. The compile process is quite complex involving many layers of build.
Stage Description

Stage 1B Initialize main memory
Stage 2 Post memory initialization: initialize CPU, I/O controllers, devices etc.
Payload Load, verify and launch OS images; or perform firmware update
