I understand. It works around the hang for me.

Is that what should decide which rom to flash? Are there scenarios where that
would cause problems?

I suppose the 'easiest' way to fix this would be adding a command line option
that forces LPC/SPI?

Or, perhaps make the decision based on which board is detected? That brings
us back to the age-old problem of identifying boards based on PCI ids though.
