ok, i found the problem. i hadn't set CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM but i had
x86-pat enabled. this was the problem. with the nopat kernel boot option
it produces this output:
xiix:~# flashrom -V
Calibrating delay loop... 855M loops per second, 100 myus = 200 us. OK.
No coreboot table found.
Found chipset "Intel ICH10R", enabling flash write...
