WARNING! You seem to be running flashrom on a laptop.
Laptops, notebooks and netbooks are difficult to support and we recommend
to use the vendor flashing utility. The embedded controller (EC) in these
machines often interacts badly with flashing.
See http://www.flashrom.org/Laptops for details.

If flash is shared with the EC, erase is guaranteed to brick your laptop
and write may brick your laptop.
Read and probe may irritate your EC and cause fan failure, backlight
failure and sudden poweroff.
You have been warned.
