The problem is that this specific chip does not appear to support the
RDID instruction (at least the data sheet is silent about it). If it
supports RDID, adding support for it is easy once somebody has run
flashrom -V on that chip.
Ask your seller/distributor about JEDEC-RDID instruction support before
you buy.

I have no idea about the correct form factor, though.
