Workaround: reboot twice.

We are still having inconsistent results. As a summary of mails on the
flashrom list about the S2915(-E):

21.10.2009, Alessandro Polverini (r736): No chip found
03.12.2009, Alessandro Polverini (r791+GPIO4): No chip found
19.01.2010, Phil (r710): No chip found
28.01.2010, Allesandro Polverini, other board (r884): Chip found (SST49LF080A)
21.01.2010, Nicolas Aveline (r877;HP board): No chip found
08.12.2009, Joel Robertson (r710): Chip found (SST49LF080A)

We do not have datasheets for the chip set, we can just look what
different vendor update hooks do - and they seem to contradict each

Alessandro: On your second board the chip was found. Can you please post
the output of lspci -nnvvxxx so we can compare to a board where the chip
is not found?
