Nice, thanks! Did you run the write with the -v (verify) option a la
'flashrom -wv foo.rom' and did it report "VERIFIED"?

Did a 'flashrom -E', 'flashrom -r empty.rom', 'hexdump -C empty.rom'
report only 0xff lines?

If yes, all of the boards do work nicely out of the box, indeed. We
can then update the flashrom code and the wiki.

Btw, the LEX Systems CV700A has a VIA VN700 / VT8237R chipset, so it
could be supported by coreboot quite easily, if you're interested.

Cheers, Uwe.
