This is the best test right now. Writing doesn't work on your
platform for some reason. It would be helpful to see output from
flashrom -E -V

Possibly the BIOS has restricted flash chip access.

Also, which revision of flashrom is this? It seems a recent one, but
if you haven't already please run svn up to get the very latest
