I would like to get this issue fixed before the next flashrom release, but I didn't see any response from you yet.

If the system has an SMSC LPC47N217N SuperIO, enter_conf_mode_ite() enters configuration mode, and then exit_conf_mode_ite() kills power to the serial UART.
I don't know if there is a proper way to detect what kind of SuperIO the system has, but probe_superio_ite() is unsafe in its current form.
In theory, running superiotool should have the same effect as running current flashrom. Can you please check that?
If running superiotool has no bad side effects, I plan to just copy that code over to flashrom and be happy.
Sorry, I didn't get a chance to try out superiotool before I left my previous employer, and I no longer have access to the board with this SuperIO.
If you have a patch to flashrom that does the same thing as superiotool, I can ask my former colleagues to give it a try.
