Remove dead M-Systems Disk on Chip code
DOC support has been disabled by default for many years. The write function does nothing but print text. It has a call to write_page_md2802() commented out, but that function does not exist. This is dead code with ugly #ifdefs. Updates README to reflect that there was a time when there was code, but it didn't work. Removes M-Systems #defines and also includes svn rm msys_doc.* Corresponding to flashrom svn r269 and coreboot v2 svn r3382. Signed-off-by: Peter Stuge <> Acked-by: Stefan Reinauer <>

+been disabled by default in flashrom for several years because the code
+was considered unstable and incomplete. The products intended to work
