I had one similar report from another user of rev 1.x of the board. The
change slipped in, it was there to reduce differences on rev 2.x
boards, but it turned out that it was not related to the flashrom issues
and will cause flashing on rev 1.x to fail.

See above. Could you send a patch to revert it and change the comment
above the reverted line to
"SIO pin set 2 input mode"
Such a patch is acked in advance.
