Partial flashing is not yet possible in flashrom because some generic
infrastructure is missing, but once flashrom 0.9.2 is out, we will add
this feature. Some code already exists, but it has to be reviewed and
tested and merged, and it depends on a refactoring of our write
functions, and that will happen directly after 0.9.2 is out (maybe even
this week).
