Update the ITE IT8500 EC support to match the current state of the flashrom-chromium tree
This code has been deployed and tested to work on the Cr-48.
There are a few caveats, though:
- The boot BIOS straps register must be modified to select LPC. This
can be done with the "select_bbs.sh" script (Install iotools at
http://code.google.com/p/iotools/ before using select_bbs).
- It is very important to disable power management daemons before
running flashrom on this EC. I commented out the brute force method
we use in the Chromium OS branch that disables powerd, since IIRC
Carl-Daniel has a better approach in the works.
- Due to dependencies which may be introduced by the OEM/ODM EC
firmware, the code is not guaranteed to work for anything other than
Corresponding to flashrom svn r1263.
