i beg to differ about tunnelcreek's lpc capabilities:
"The Intel® AtomTM Processor E6xx Series implements an LPC interface as
described in the LPC1.1 Specification."
(from Intel® AtomTM Processor E6xx Series Datasheet (324208-003US),

more interestingly is that there was already code added to flashrom to
support tunnelcreek. and most interestingly this was done
by one of your colleagues ;) i have CCed ingo this email.
please see commit r1430 and

i have not checked the datasheet and/or the code of r1430 yet. it
certainly can be simplified/unified with the other init functions and i
have it on my todo list (at the end of it though).
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
