Ok, this shows how rusty i am with respect to flashrom. Not recognizing 
the + 0x0C as the typical offset for intel gpio line toggle.

What this board needs is a call to intel_ich_gpio20_raise();

Will provide a patch later today.

I am a bit worried though that the lpc io BAR is empty in your lspci. I 
am not sure whether that is handled in any way, and i do not think the 
intel gpio code in flashrom will deal with an empty bar gracefully.
