Looks really good.

The only remaining question is whether the erase and write functions
should be the generic JEDEC functions instead. I haven't tested that and
unfortunately I did not have time to read the spec yet.

Simply running "flashrom" with the patch should tell you whether the
chip detection works and it is absolutely harmless. We can postpone
testing erase and write until you have confirmed chip detection.

Also, could you please add a Signed-off-by statement to your patch?
Otherwise we can't commit it. See
