Actually, the first half of plugin support in flashrom has already been
SPI is already completely plugin-ready. A plugin for an external flasher
simply registers as SPI chipset driver. No further changes needed.
LPC/FWH/Parallel is mostly done. The mmap operations need to be
abstracted out, the driver for the external flasher has to register its
own version of chip_readb/chip_writeb and you're done except for
cosmetic changes.
