I've been working with an ODM for an un-named OEM, who supplied me the
datasheet for the IT89 without signing an NDA. I don't think I can
redistribute it without issues.
I don't think much has been done for the internal
flash on these ICs on
flashrom. For instance, I didn't know the IT8987 had an internal flash.
As I understand it, at least for the the hardware I have here, the
IT89 has both. The SPI "external" flash is only used to populate the
"internal" e-flash at manufacturing time and then after than it's
unused. I imagine you could reprogram the 128k external SPI chip using
the indirect mapping thing although at least for me it's a nice "get
out of jail" feature as the current firmware seems to look for the
A5A5A5A5 16 byte header on the e-flash to check if it's valid. Of
course, I could have misunderstood this all wildly.

IT87 handling was easy and straightforward because all
(regarding flash) was translating LPC flash accesses to SPI flash
accesses in passthrough mode and offering a separate SPI-centric
programming interface for full access.
I think IT89 is much like a IT87 -- some of the LDNs seem a bit
different (and there are more!) but it looks basically the same kind
