Sometimes we want to read/write more than 4 bytes of chip content at once
Add chip_{read,write}n to the external flasher infrastructure which read/write n bytes at once. Fix a few places where the code used memcpy/memcmp although that is strictly impossible with external flashers. Place a FIXME in the layout.c code because usage is not totally clear and needs to be fixed to support external flashers. As a nice side benefit, we get a noticeable speedup for builtin flash reading which is now a memcpy() of the full flash area instead of a series of single-byte reads. Corresponding to flashrom svn r579. Signed-off-by: Carl-Daniel Hailfinger <> Acked-by: Urja Rannikko <> Acked-by: Uwe Hermann <>
