The patch alone is no proof but if you have tested it with real
hardware and it worked then there is no reason to not believe you and
mark it as tested. Have you run flashrom with your patch on that
hardware and did writing work?

Buffers most often have disable (or enable) pins and if they are not
pulled down (or up) statically by resistors we need to do that
dynamically when starting to access the programmer. This would not be
unusual at all for this class of programmers... hence my question.
