This is great info Carl-Daniel. Is it listed on the Wiki somewhere? If not
it should be. I always thought we should have a little bit of technical
info in our flashrom "Supported devices" table. A column with the chips
package size (PLCC32, DIP24, etc) and a column with what type the chip is
(ex. FWH, LPC, SPI, etc). This would make it a great reference point for
people looking for a replacement chip, or larger compatable chip. Do you
