I found the difference in the builds:

--- src/mainboard/gigabyte/m57sli/Config.lb     (revision 2994)
+++ src/mainboard/gigabyte/m57sli/Config.lb     (working copy)

This has been changed in rev 2972. Buildrom has still the 'old'
version. Flashing works fine for me if irq 0xc9 = 0x0 is set. With irq
0xc9 = 0x40 it fails. 

Could somebody check if flashing really works for some m57sli-boards
(LPC) with the latest revision (irq 0xc9 = 0x40)?
