note to all: we did find, long ago, on  one mainboard with one
particular chip, that a POST cycle at the wrong time would hang
flashrom. The issue is that every POST cycle is a failed cycle, in the
sense that no device ever responds. The chipset timeout cycle was long
enough to glitch the timing.

Linux does indeed have some POST cycles in the kernel. So, it is
possible that on some chipsets, now and in the future, this could be
an issue. The best part is that the actual problem can appear or not
appear depending on chipset, revision, and bios revision. Isn't that

Just an FYI.
