One of the problems is that --force had multiple meanings
- Force chip read by faking probe success. - Force chip access even if the chip is bigger than max decode size for the flash bus. - Force erase even if erase is known bad. - Force write even if write is known bad. - Force writing even if cbtable tells us that this is the wrong image for this board. This patch cleans up --force usage: - Remove any suggestions to use --force for probe/read from flashrom output. - Don't talk about "success" or "Found chip" if the chip is forced. - Add a new internal programmer parameter boardmismatch=force. This overrides any mismatch detection from cbtable/image comparisons. - Add a new internal programmer parameter laptop=force_I_want_a_brick. - Adjust the documentation for --force. - Clean up the man page a bit whereever it talks about --force or laptops. Additional changes in this patch: - Add warnings about laptops to the documentation. - Abort if a laptop is detected. Can be overridden with the programmer parameter mentioned above. - Add "Portable" to the list of DMI strings indicating laptops. - Check if a chip specified with -c is known to flashrom. - Programmer parameter reliability and consistency fixes. - More paranoid self-checks. - Improve documentation. Corresponding to flashrom svn r996. Signed-off-by: Carl-Daniel Hailfinger <c-d.hailfinger.devel.2006@gmx.net> Acked-by: Michael Karcher <flashrom@mkarcher.dialup.fu-berlin.de>
