[flashrom] ASUS M2N-MX support

I am sending this email to you because you have send logs regarding the
M2N-MX mainboard. For a long time we were missing the necessary
infrastructure to add support for that board easily and later it seems
to have been forgotten. To this day it was only possible to read
from the flash chip but not to write to it. Sorry about that!

I have attached a patch that hopefully enables erase/write on that board
and would like you to test if it works if you still have access to that

The patch has to be applied to the latest development code (r1573) of
flashrom that can be found here:
After saving the patch file to the flashrom directory please run the
following inside the flashrom directory to apply it:
patch < 0001-Add-board-enable-for-ASUS-M2N-MX.patch
After that you can compile with "make". It should create an executable
file named "flashrom in that directory.

Although i think it is pretty safe to try, please make at least a
backup of the original flash contents with -r before trying to erase or
write! If anything unexpected happens don't reboot or shut down, but
contact us please. If you try to write please reply with the output of
./flashrom -V -p internal -w <new bios image>

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
