Force enabling SPI mode for SB600 is a bad idea and leads to hangs
Only access LPC ROM if we boot via LPC ROM. Only access SPI ROM if we boot via SPI ROM. The code to force enable SPI is commented out in case someone wants to reenable it for a particular board with LPC and SPI flash. Corresponding to flashrom svn r459.
