Dear LinuxBIOS readers!

This is the automated build check service of LinuxBIOS.

The developer "hailfinger" checked in revision 3030 to
the LinuxBIOS source repository and caused the following 

Change Log:
Add continuation ID support to jedec.c
The continuation ID code does not go further than checking for IDs of
the type 0x7fXX, but does this for vendor and product ID. The current
published JEDEC spec has a list where the largest vendor ID is 7 bytes
long, but all leading bytes are 0x7f. The list will grow in the future,
and using a 64bit variable will not be enough anymore.
Besides that, it seems that the location of the ID byte after the first
continuation ID byte is very vendor specific, so we may have to revisit
that code some time in the future.

(Suggestion for a new encoding:
Use a two-byte data type for the ID, the lower byte contains the only
non-0x7f byte, the upper byte contains the number of 0x7f bytes used as
prefix, which is the bank number minus 1 the vendor ID appears in.)

Add support for EON EN29F002AT.

Build Log:
Compilation of amd:serengeti_cheetah_fam10 is still broken
See the error log at http://qa.linuxbios.org/log_buildbrd.php?revision=3030&device=serengeti_cheetah_fam10&vendor=amd

If something broke during this checkin please be a pain 
in hailfinger's neck until the issue is fixed.

If this issue is not fixed within 24h the revision should 
be backed out.

   Best regards,
     LinuxBIOS automatic build system
