I slipped a quick test in while the testers are doing some other tests.  I 
think it's doing what you wanted to see.  I've attached the debug data 
your looking for.

Hello again,

i have a patch for you to test. It tries to add support for the VT8251
by using the code for similar VIA chipsets. We are pretty confident
that it will work although we could not verify it against a datasheet
(yet). The Renesas chip might still be a problem, but we hopefully be
able to take one step forward. Please apply the attached patch to the
current subversion head and send us the output of

flashrom -V -p internal:laptop=this_is_not_a_laptop

and if that finds a chip also the output of

flashrom -V -p internal:laptop=this_is_not_a_laptop -r testfile.bin

Please don't try to write or erase yet!
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
