ok that was way quicker than usual (yay! :).
if you like please test the current svn HEAD flashrom on all boards with
a winbond superio and send us the usual flashrom -V output, thanks!

NB: it contains the following patch that should detect (*not* enable)
the superios. it is the first step to integrate the generic enable.
