That's exactly what I plan to do Carl-Daniel (with everyones help of
course). The windows software C source for the original program is
available for a reference point and it is very simple. We just need to
convert it to linux/flashrom language. I plan on adding a L option to
flashrom for this. Probibly something like "-l /dev/lp0"
