We want to verify all changes to flashrom in quite some detail to keep
it as stable as it is. A single huge patch like yours takes a very long
time to fully understand. It is probably not even possible to review
such a big change in one go without making some mistakes or overlook
error of the original author. Smaller independent patches could be
reviewed entirely without getting too much of a headache. Does that
make sense to you?

Of course it is a lot of work to split an existing patch into smaller
standalone bits... so maybe, if you would really like to do that, it
would be better to wait for a first feedback from us... we will
probably like you to change a few things anyway. Of course you are not
obliged to do anything at all if you don't want to, we are grateful for
your patch as it is... :)
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
