Sorry Stefan,

I've been busy and our test lab is being used to do a regression right now 
so I've not had time to try and compile and test the patch you provided.

I do intend to do so, give me a little more time and I'll see what I can 

On the topic of IBM and help, I have been in discussion with IBM about the 
firmware updates and they have been very adamant that we need to insure 
that we update all the devices not just the BIOS itself.  From looking at 
a handful of their update packages, I can see that they frequently include 
updates for riser cards, service processors and possibly other devices 
with the BIOS updates.  So before we implement something with flashrom we 
would want to make sure we're not missing something that could later cause 
us issues even if the issues are only that IBM is unhappy  because we 
didn't follow their update procedures.

IBM's retail group is going through some changes since Toshiba acquired 
them.  We'll need to wait and see what the new management is going to do, 
maybe they will be more open to open source involvement.

Hello Jason!

I have sent you a patch to try almost a month ago without any reply. I
would like to know if you could solve your problem another way and
don't rely on getting flashrom to work anymore. In any case it would be
much appreciated if you could test the patch i have sent. Is that
possible? If you need any assistance dont hesitate to ask us!

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
