[LinuxBIOS] [PATCH] flashrom patch for iwill dk8_htx

Hi, Peter,

These are two things I did when I use this patch (however it works on my board):

1 add a option to the flashrom command line, such as:
  -m iwill:dk8_htx
  It seems that flashrom rely on some information of LinuxBIOS in
CMOS, so before the first running of LinuxBIOS, there's nothing in
CMOS for LinuxBIOS, I have to add this option to make flashrom know
what my mainboard is.

2 I add a new entry in the table which is a little different from
Mondrian's. And I think both of these two entry are needed for
different dk8-htx mainboards.

       { 0x1022, 0x7468, 0x1022, 0x7468,  0x0000, 0x0000, 0x0000, 0x0000,
               "iwill", "dk8_htx", "IWILL DK8-HTX", board_iwill_dk8htx },

We will appreciate if you can add this patch into the official svn. It
helps a lot!
