[LinuxBIOS] flashrom utility

I would like to reduce the address output during flashing, verifying etc
in the flashrom utility. Instead of printing each address, it would be 
sufficient to write every 256th address or even every 4096th address:

so we could write
                if (verbose && ((i&0xfff)==0))
                        printf("0x%08x", i);

instead of
                if (verbose)
                        printf("0x%08x", i);

The reason is if you are writing/verifying flash on a reasonably slow
serial console it will take several hours (and hopefully not mess with
the flash timing)

any vetos?
