Mh. So the DMI strings are completely useless.

That's good. Really good.
I just sent a patch titled "Add IT8705 autodetection" to the flashrom
list (you're in CC). Could you apply that patch against latest flashrom
from svn and test probing again? Write might still fail (in fact, that's
pretty likely), but if detection works, this is a big step forward.

Should be fixed with my patch.

Yes, of course.
