A few more comments:

Tadas, could you please re-run your lspci as "lspci -xxxnnnvvv" as root,
the current one is missing the full info.

Also, did you try a write/erase operation on the board/chip? Without a
successful write operation we cannot mark the board/chip as supported,
reading alone is not enough unfortunately.

Please post write logs (-w -VV) and the lspci mentioned above, if possible.

Thanks, Uwe.
