Note there will not be a flashrom booth at LinuxTag this year. We'll
of course try to answer flashrom questions in the coreboot booth as
best we can! :)

Carl-Daniel mentioned that he will be at LinuxTag, but busy in
another booth, so we can always get in touch with him if there are
some special questions.

SPI DIP 16-32 Mbit is a meaningful target. Some ordering codes to
choose from:

AMIC A25L032-F
Macronix MX25L3205DPI-12G
Winbond W25Q32BVDAIG
Winbond W25Q32BVDAIP

The first one is in stock at Newark/Farnell, but only in smaller
quantity. See below.

That's a lot of flash chips. If the distributor MOQ is 300 then that
would also be a very welcome contribution.

I recommend buying from a higher tier sales channel than
Newark/Farnell/Mouser/Digi-Key because of cost and because this
order is likely to reach MOQ. I'm happy to help find the most
appropriate sales channel for anyone interested in contributing to
the project in this way.

It would of course also buy prominent exposure on printed material
accompanying the flash chips.
