Carl-Daniel, I don't just want to fix this for "instant  
gratification". I needs to be a perminant solution. I have alot of  
people waiting to beta-test the RCA RM4100 coreboot bios and work on  
the tv-out, but we need to get flashrom working for a fallback/updates  
first. I can test it with the "instant gratification" method but how  
to incorperate this into jedec.c so it doesn't interfear with other  
chips that use jedec.c???

Thanks - Joe
