Somewhat strage: After flashing the old bios with the suggested patch I got
the following error output:

flashrom v0.9.1-r845
No coreboot table found.
Found chipset "AMD SB700/SB710/SB750", enabling flash write... OK.
This chipset supports the following protocols: LPC,FWH,SPI.
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
Found chip "SST SST25VF016B" (2048 KB, SPI) at physical address 0xffe00000.
This flash part has status UNTESTED for operations: ERASE
Please email a report to flashrom at flashrom.org if any of the above operations
work correctly for you with this flash part. Please include the flashrom
output with the additional -V option for all operations you tested (-V, -rV,
-wV, -EV), and mention which mainboard or programmer you tested. Thanks for your help!
Flash image seems to be a legacy BIOS. Disabling checks.
Writing flash chip... Erasing flash before programming... done.
Verifying flash... VERIFY FAILED at 0x00010058! Expected=0x15, Read=0x05, failed byte count from 0x00000000-0x001fffff: 0x12d075
Your flash chip is in an unknown state.
Get help on IRC at irc.freenode.net (channel #flashrom) or
mail flashrom at flashrom.org!

A verification by reading the BIOS (via flashrom -r <file>) and comparing it with
the original bios (via diff) shows the same difference.
