Reading the 4MB flash took 18 seconds, whereas writing took almost 3
minutes. Is it normal? On another system with Intel PCH writes were
way faster. There's another FIFO register at offset 0x80 in the new
Kabini interface, which can hopefully speed up things, but the
description is quite dense.

I'm attaching two -VV logs, one from reading and the other from writing.
