Dear coreboot readers!

This is the automatic build system of coreboot.

The developer "rminnich" checked in revision 4290 to
the coreboot repository. This caused the following 

Change Log:
This patch implements a "flash friendly" value for initialized areas of flash.
It makes the write part of flashrom dramatically faster with small
payloads like filo; and it also eliminates unnecessary wear on flash
by not writing zeros (it's unlikely this really matters; let me know
next time you flash a BIOS flash 100,000 times!).

More importantly, it allows for future partial flash upgrades with cbfs.

Note that uninitialized_flash_value is a global that can, if we ever need it,
be set by an argument in main. Assuming we ever see a flash where the
"erased" value is 0, not 0xff.

At the same time, "erased" value has been "1" on every EEPROM or
FLASH I've used for some time now.

Build Log:
Compilation of asus:mew-am is still broken
See the error log at http://qa.coreboot.org/log_buildbrd.php?revision=4290&device=mew-am&vendor=asus&num=2

If something broke during this checkin please be a pain 
in rminnich's neck until the issue is fixed.

If this issue is not fixed within 24h the revision should 
be backed out.

   Best regards,
