Reverted with full history in r3140.

How about a 32-bit bitfield for the status? This would allow not only
(probe, read, erase, write) but also stuff like (partial erase, partial
write) and maybe other status info as well for chips which are dual
FWH/LPC, but only one of the modes is supported.

Maybe an --autotest mode of flashrom would give people the opportunity
to check all possible functionality of the chip.
