I post a success story about a VIA VT6421A based SATA/PATA PCI controller. The flashrom can probe/read/write successfully the onboard PMC Pm49FL004 chip. I downloaded the patch from http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/3214/. Just one thing... "BAR type unknown..." I don't known the meaning, but it worked for me without errors. Please add the patch from above to the trunk. I attached a verbose probe output too. […] Found chip "PMC Pm49FL004" (512 kB, LPC, FWH) on atavia.
Hello Szabolcs and thanks for your report!
Sorry that it took so long, but i am now trying to make the atavia programmer working on all possible boards. As you found out it works on yours, but that is actually a coincident. The BAR thingy is dealt with and was just a cosmetic error, but there is another problem which was not visible to you.
Do you still own that controller?
If so could you please post... - the output of lspci -nnvvvxxx (run as root) - the vendor and model name of the card - the revision number of the VT6421A chip (below the "VT6421A" string) and the country noted on the right.
