[flashrom] AMD - SP5100 - take SPI ownership (1/2)

Hi Stefan,

Here's how I applied the path to the latest source. In the flashrom directory, I copied the patch file, and simply did: patch < a.patch
It completed without complaints.
I then do a make clean, then a make.

Unfortunately, I cannot be sure about why it failed yesterday. I may have made a mistake, and turned off the emulator from the PC before running flashrom. That's why I retried today, and flashrom was able to access the emulator as expected.

Other thoughts?

I need to reprogram the onboard memory before I can do a definitive test of flashrom (I cannot boot at the moment without the emulator). This will take me a few days to get my hands on an in-circuit programmer. Attached is the output when flashrom reprograms the emulator.

What's different between this time now and the last time were flashrom could not shutdown the IMC? Was the hardware setup equal or did something change? Apparently it worked as it should this time, so this does not help us debug any issue if there is one.

I care because maybe there were other problems with applying the changes or even something more severe that influence the testing.
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
