I personally tested on s2892 and s2895, Ward has used the s2891.  In
general, all coreboot-supported boards should show up in the list.  Are
there any that are supported by coreboot but not by flashrom?

I'm not complaining.  Just commenting.

These entries from the wiki seem confusing to me.  Are there two different
K7M boards?

Known good (worked out of the box)
Tyan 	 S2498 (Tomcat K7M) 	 OK

Known good (with write-enable code in flashrom)
Tyan 	 Tomcat K7M 	 - 	 OK
