serprog: add opcode to control the programmer's output drivers
This allowed me to let the clips remain attached on my D946GZIS while playing with coreboot/serialice. Corresponding to flashrom svn r1618. Signed-off-by: Stefan Tauner <firstname.lastname@example.org> Acked-by: Stefan Tauner <email@example.com>

+ 0x15 (S_CMD_S_PIN_STATE):
+ Sets the state of the pin drivers connected to the flash chip. Disabling them allows other
+ devices (e.g. a mainboard's chipset) to access the chip. This way the serprog controller can

About mandatory commands:
The only truly mandatory commands for any device are 0x00, 0x01, 0x02 and 0x10,
but one can't really do anything with these commands.
