Your board is recognized. So it's not a missing board enable, but...

...this chips supports block locking. flashrom seems to never had
unlocking support for this chip, but unlocking stuff in coming soon. The
datasheet is regretfully not clear on whether block locks affect the
chip erase instruction or not. We will send you a mail when chip
locking/unlocking support for your chip has been added.
