as the lead developer of the open source flashrom utility
<http://www.flashrom.org/> I have to say that it would be nice to have
Qemu emulate a flash chip. Right now flashrom is using its own flash
chip emulator for testing, and being able to use flashrom in Qemu would
be a nice addition.

Is there any reason why you chose to invent an interface for the flash
chip which is more complicated than the interface used by common flash
chips out there?
Maybe some EFI requirement?
