This flashrom version is pretty old.

This looks like nothing changed. If you made a backup of your ROM
contents, please run
flashrom -Vv backup.rom
If it says "VERIFIED", nothing changed and it is safe to reboot.
However, we would like to add support for your mainboard.Could you
please download latest flashrom (preferably flashrom 0.9.3) and run the
following commands (as root), then send the output to us?
Please use the subject "yourboardname: boardenable needed" for that
e-mail and mention the exact model of your mainboard including the
revision, and tell us where we can find a BIOS download for it.
