the partial flash is very confusing. That's usually a caching
interaction. But MTRRs are not set to cache that region. If there were
no flashing, then it would likely be a GPIO that disables flash
writes. If we can get linuxbios up on this PCChips board we can see if
flash works then. There may be SMM stuff going on here too.
