No, it's just that subsystem IDs with 0x0 in that table trigger a
"unsafe match" mechanism in flashrom and autodetection will fail.
Picking a different PCI device which has (hopefully board-specific)
subsystem IDs enables auto-matching. You couldn't have known that. I
asked Luc to look into this because he is our expert in picking the best
hopefully-unique subsystem IDs.

Side note: We really need a flashrom.org upload interface which accepts
lspci/flashrom/superiotool data and can extract best matches automatically.
