Automagically doing the wrong thing is probally not good.  I would say
that the current behavior is good just not verbose enough.

If it does not find an lbtable then it should say so and exit with a
example of the right option(s) to use for -m or -f to disable checks.

Something like:

"Your flash image does not appear to correct for the mainboard I have
detected."  If you are sure this is a correct image for this mainboard
then you can override this check with:

-m <mfg:model>
or -f to disable this check completely.

And then fill in mfg and model with the autodetected values.
