Hello Gerard!

thanks for letting us know about this. in the future please always
provide at least a log of "flashrom -V", or if possible the log of the
actual write procedure. this prevents any misinterpretations and other
mistakes and is even less work than compiling such a nice summary ;)
i have marked the used flash chip as fully tested and also added the
board to the list of known boards. will commit that later.

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
