I mean the EC firmware of the x220, for keyboard, power management and
battery, etc. Or is it located on a different chip? I see, it's not part
of the flash chip layout.
Keyboard and power management tends to be split into two on
Thinkpads, but in any case yes, those controllers generally either
have separate flash for firmware or are ASICs without firmware.
Yes, you are right, but the warning sounds so strange. ;-)

Good to know
Flashrom could be improved to not display some of them when they are
known not to apply, such as in your case, but there are other cases
where flashrom can't really know if the warning is needed or not.
That's more difficult.

An external SPI Flasher and a working image should be one way.
Yep - excellent!
BTW: USB 3.0 is working, but one can't boot it via SeaBIOS.
Maybe send a message to the SeaBIOS mailing list about that. I don't
know if that is actually expected to work. Sorry.
