Thanks for testing!
An ack would be appreciated.

I'm assuming the LPC flash board was with BIOS, and the SPI flash board
was with coreboot

There's one thing we might want to address independently: Garbage in DMI
if someone is using coreboot.

There should be a way to detect this, preferably without having garbage
appear in the logs.
Ward, could you please run the following commands on the coreboot
machine and mail the output?
dmidecode -s system-manufacturer
echo $?

Thanks a lot.
