the issue is that flashrom was not designed to associate two access
methods for a single part. FWH has a totally different block locking
method, requiring a second mmap, etc. I have found that a jedec (LPC)
sequence can in some cases ID a part that is a FWH-strapped part.
Weird but true -- I just saw it again today.

it's all a headache.
