Multiple flashrom fixes
- Install binary in /usr/sbin (not /usr/bin), as it's a root-only tool. - Rename manpage from flashrom.1 to flashrom.8, as section 8 contains "System administration commands (usually only for root)". - Actually install the manpage upon 'make install'. Corresponding to flashrom svn r149 and coreboot v2 svn r2866. Signed-off-by: Uwe Hermann <uwe@hermann-uwe.de> Acked-by: Stefan Reinauer <stepan@coresystems.de>
