I saw in newest version https://github.com/flashrom/flashrom/blob/master/flashchips.h this chip is still not listed. So probably also not supported in newest development version.

You could try adding its' definitions to flashchips.c / flashchips.h , using the definitions or other GigaDevice chips as the base and datasheet if available. Hopefully this would be more simple than it seems for you. Then you could submit a working patch.
