It did work correctly, but the "multiple flash chip support" patch made
it a lot less useful.

Reverting multiple flash chip support would be one of the possible

decoding the vendor ID if the device ID is unknown. By the way, that
would also be the only correct solution for multiple flash chip recognition.
