Well not so on the other look ;) One would need to do bit of I/O to/from file 
right? Maybe one could place the file to HIGMEM and after flashrom is finished 
write it back using normal dos ;)

Second possibility is to compile against the libpayload and use DPMI services to 
handle the I/O and even setup the protected mode. If one forces the compiler to 
output in COFF format one can even embedd the application in CSWDPMI ;)
