Hello all,

First thanks to Uwe for nic3com support and to Mats Erik (IIRC) for helping
with (or atleast pointing out the lack of) 3C905B support - i just tested a
SST 29EE010 on an 3C905B-TXNM that had been useless for a while - works :)

Anyways, does anyone know how big flash chips these 3com's support? The SST
i tested is 128k - i can propably (given time) test 256k also, but just

And also, if i plan on using this for "hotflashing" a chip from another box
to do my various hacks, it would be very much indeed too easy to
accidentally write flashrom -w <file> instead of flashrom -p nic3com -w
<file> .
I'm not 100% sure whether this is a good idea (some might find it annoying),
but i suggest that in case of "flashrom -w" or "flashrom -E" it would ask
for sure, eg. "This will erase/write your INTERNAL flash chip. Are you sure
If given flashrom -p internal -w (or -E) it would not ask (for scripting).
