Today I noticed a new stretch goal about flashrom support (kinda late in 
the game), it seems pretty important to have this so I think that the 
stretch goal funding should be extended.

I had assumed that the BMC firmware would be stored in and loaded from 
the main coreboot flash image, or that there would be a shim loader 
installable on the bmc firmware module that would (as the BMC has DMA) 
load the firmware from memory for easy updating.

The requiring of the firmware module may be a problem for some people 
because apparently there are two different SKU's from asus one of which 
didn't ship with it and no retailers sell it separately.

Also, If the stretch goal doesn't get funded is it possible to perform a 
"clean" flash with a test clip?
