I would like to see the following feature added to flashrom:
Some chips require certain bits (and similar features) be set before the hardware write-protect pins can be used. Flashrom doesn't currently support setting these bits, which makes it impossible to e.g hardware write-protect a BIOS chip after flashing Coreboot. I would like to see Flashrom add support for this.
Attached is a patch which was written by someone else (they can identify themselves if they like) to toggle the relevant bits for a particular flash chip, each time flashrom is run, and tell the user what's going on.
Your task, if you want to claim the bounty, is to:
If $100 isn't enough to make this attractive, I am open to increasing the bounty. I am also happy to escrow it if need be. Payment will be in Bitcoin.
