Full ack.

Nah, overkill and not really useful IMO.

Ack. No patch should ever break the build or runtime-behaviour of
flashrom. That doesn't mean we can't do radical changes, such changes
just have to be done in a manner which doesn't break flashrom, either
in small incremental steps or in bigger patch-series which do all
changes at once. But we don't need (or want, IMO) branches for either...
