I've tested read/write/erase on Dell T410 and it appeared to work fine.
 I initially did a flashrom -r backup.bin which appeared to work.  Then
I attempted flashrom and aborted after several minutes with flashrom
taking 100% CPU.  When I reread the flash, it appeared to have been
erased.  I then started the write operation again and after some
patience it completed successfully.

After talking to carldani, idwer, macavity, and flyback on #flashrom
(thanks for the help) I reverted to the original backup since this was a
remote machine and someone wasn't on site in case the BIOS wanted some
input on reboot

The machine did not reboot and a person was sent to the location to hard
powercycle the machine, and it came up and booted fine.
