[coreboot] Yet another idea of an SPI flash chip programmer

There are lots of flash programmer out there, but none of them (those
I know about) fits my requirement well.
I would like a programmer to be:
* able to program SPI flash chips,
* not slow (program 512k bytes in 3 mins),
* with a driver whose source code is available (or not difficult to write one),
* simple, and
There is one that almost does the job,
 would it be very slow?
Recently I find a chip FT2232x
It seems that the chip's IO could be configured to work in bit-bang
mode and thus able to implement as an SPI I/F.
 I think it is easy to build a prototype programmer using this chip. Is it?
 Is the programmer going to meet my requirement?
