Got the patch, will apply it after i break.

I have noticed modprobing l440gx will provoke this problem on this
single cpu generic 440bx board.  I don't think this hang occurs with my
tyan 1832DL dual cpu board.

Also, the generic single cpu 440bx board, flashrom doesn't detect any
flash chips.  So I've loaded up uniflash and it tells me the flash chip
is at the standard 0xfffc0000 -> (DA256C2D)

It's a STMicroelectronics M29F002(B)(T)/5V

XMSPos XMSLeft and sector map can also be provided, but I think what we
want is just the memory location of the flash bios chip (0xfffc0000)?

I'm taking a quick break and will be back in 30 minutes and will apply
the patch.
