Ok, here it is... A first stab at a board enable... Not the way it 
should be, but we have little other option.

Glenn, apply on top of a clean flashrom tree.

Luc Verhaegen.
Add potential board enable for Asus A7V8X.

We sadly do not have enough information on the superio of this board,
and are unable to properly dump registers from it. Current theory is
that 0x370 is the gpio simple io base, and that we are dropping gpio1.
