Hi Marc,

Not sure if that is the case because after programming the chip I verify the
contents and they are same. Btw the flash chip that I am using is Intel's
N82802AB which is of the same size as the flash part that the board was
shipped with SST49LF004B.

One more thing, I have built coreboot manually instead of using buildrom
after which i have patched vsa.
