 from FFFE0000-FFFFFFFF as well.
 > As pointed out you should just enable the full 1-Meg space.  Several of
 those settings are jsut for the legacy alias into the lower 1 Meg of
 address space.  Since we don't have that legacy baggage you can just
 eanble the entire upper 1 Meg (0xfff00000- 0xffffffff).  And let flashrom
 mmap it.

 I have now enabled all three relevant bits, which should result in all of
 the upper meg (I hope). It's tested from cold boot, I can detect, read,
 and write multiple 256K chips. I'll attach an updated patch.
