This patch makes use of the dediprog LEDs.

It would be nice to have some "more global" infrastructure for device
dependent status reporting. Right now some scenarios can not be
reported as an error, though the user would think of them as one. For
example, if the chip is IDed successfully but not supported by
flashrom, thus it can not be flashed. At best, the dediprog driver
sees a successful RDID command, but has no knowledge about the failure
to read/write the chip. Therefore it can not report it.

However, the attached patch improves my work flow here quite a bit, so
I thought it should be shared.
