Hi Ricardo,

I would have hoped for a more generic patch that adds some
eeprom-specific infrastructure, but your approach seems to be legit
when implementing this with the current infrastructure in flashrom.
Sorry for not mentioning the opaque API before, that is of course the
easiest way to get such things to work.

Would it be even possible to probe for IDs of the EEPROMs with the
interface on the Intel NICs? What EEPROM model(s) do see on your boards?

I have not reviewed your patch in detail yet. There are probably a few
coding style issues etc., but we can fix that ourselves if we have to.
The bigger question is if we want to add something like it at all. I
don't see good reason why we should not, but I need to discuss this
with my colleague(s) (and that usually takes more time than one would
expect). In any case your code is out there and can be used even if it
does not get merged into vanilla flashrom eventually and your work is
much appreciated, thank you. 
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
