Random flashrom updates
- Add explicit installation instructions in the README. - Code cleanups, coding style fixes, drop dead code. - Drop duplicate board listings from -L output (some boards were explicitly recorded in boards_ok[] _and_ implicitly via the board-enables table. - Add MS-xxxx numbers to MSI boards where we can find that info. - Fix typo, "K8T Neo2" should have been "K8T Neo2-F" actually, at least according to the comment of w83627thf_gpio4_4_raise_2e() which says "Suited for: MSI K8T Neo2-F". Corresponding to flashrom svn r554. Signed-off-by: Uwe Hermann <> Acked-by: Uwe Hermann <>
