Hm, depends on the viewpoint and personal preference, I guess. Flashrom
shares some/most of the developers with LinuxBIOS, but that doesn't
make it part of the LinuxBIOS project (as in: the firmware software
called LinuxBIOS). It's an independant user-space command line tool,
which just happens to be developed by the same people as LinuxBIOS.

The same is probably true for lxbios, FILO, lbmenu, and other related tools.
