Ah, sorry about the confusion, I get serial output when NOT running
linuxbios. That was just me making sure that was set up correctly. I haven't
yet managed to boot linuxbios. I'm obviously doing something stupid building
the image - my images are not even being recognized by flashrom as being
Linuxbios images. 

Yhlu sent me an image to test, but I can't burn that as it is being seen as
not the correct size by flashrom.

Real size: 524288 bytes

  root at chimera:~/LinuxBIOSv2/util/flashrom# ./flashrom -v -w

  Override with -m ifyou know exactly what you are doing.

Not sure what's going on here.
