Sounds good.

That's fine. If the same code is supposed to work with more chips
then don't let lack of testing stop you from adding the chip entries
in flashchips.c.

Please discuss this text with your employer. I think there can be a
legal problem with adding claimed confidential source code to
coreboot. Yes, there is the Signed-off-by, which implicitly states
that the code is in fact not confidential, but since both signoff and
this text is part of the same email message I don't think it will be
possible to say that one has priority over the other.

(Plus, it is a little strange to tell everyone that you send
confidential information in clear text to the internet.)
