I've tested this patch against flashrom v0.9.6.1-r1673 on a Supermicro
H8DGi-F board.

It works as expected. Without it, flashrom errors out complaining about SB600
FIFO pointer corruption.

With your patch (http://patchwork.coreboot.org/patch/3894/), I was able to
read *and* write the rom chip succesfully.
