Yes, but the current flashrom SPI abstraction is rather unsuited for SPI
hosts which are different from the IT8716F. I will try to remedy that
over the course of the next few months together with ICH[789] SPI
support for flashrom.
Even after the flashrom SPI code has been restructured, it will be
difficult to implement SPI support without docs. AFAICS the VT8237S docs
are not yet floating around the net.
