I tried out flashrom on an ASUS A8N-VM CSM board: read seemed to go fine, but write failed. Information about the board: http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=JBqqlpj4cspbSa3s
flashrom -V, lspci -nnvvxxx, superiotool -deV, flashrom -rV and flashrom -wV output is attached. The BIOS I was trying to write was the rev 1001 one available from the above ASUS page.
Just to ensure I understood the flashrom project process correctly:
Is there something else besides sending the info I did I could do to get this board supported (or marked as not working) in flashrom? I haven't noticed anything related to the board happening in svn and I'm afraid I can't help with coding support for it.
I *guess* probe and read could be marked as working but I haven't able to actually verify that; the image I read from BIOS with flashrom wasn't exactly the same as the vendor shipped one. And as noted earlier, my write attempt failed and it seemed to try to do an erase at start so I guess that means both write and erase (or at least erase?) are non-working at the moment.
