Please do NOT try write/erase on any important cards yet, it doesn't seem to fully work properly yet and you could "brick" your card.
I tested a "RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro", which successfully identified and read a Winbond W29C011 chip, but erase and write behaved incorrect and I finally bricked the card.
Will look into recovery soon (likely will work via software I assume, no hardware hacking strictly required I think/hope, we'll see).
As for the list of supported cards: I have no idea which of those may work (i.e. have the same flash programming interface), maybe none, maybe all of them (and lots more NVIDIA cards), we'll see as soon as others test more cards.
Luc already acked this on condition of some changes, but I didn't see any followup yet. Even if the code is semi-broken right now, I'd like to merge it (and disable compilation by default). That way, we can reduce the number of unmerged patches and at the same time make it easy for other developers to test and/or fix.
I tested a successful identify and read on a "RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro" card for now, erase and write did NOT work properly so far!
Please do not attempt to write/erase cards yet, unless you can recover!

If you don't have time to address the issues Luc mentioned, please tell us and maybe some flashrom newbies want to take a stab at them.
