Please download latest flashrom from svn, then apply the attached patch,
compile it, then use flashrom to write your backup. This will only work
for restoring the backup.
If you check with "flashrom -V backup.rom" afterwards, it should say

If someone comes up with a patch that fixes the boot block lock, please run
"svn revert"
in the flashrom directory before applying such a patch to make sure no
trace of my patch remains.
