[SerialICE] an idea

serialice lets you get very far in the debug process. At some point,
one needs to take the plunge and try "the real thing".
But, on a board with soldered-on flash, this is a one-way trip.
Or maybe not.
What if we could do this: put serialice in the boot block, i.e. as the
"fallback", and put a test bios in as the "normal". Serialice could
have the capability to flash the "normal". Serialice could also be
directed to start the "normal" bios for testing purposes.
Then, I could on my 1580s do test bios images, secure in knowing that
I can always fall back to serialice and recover. Possibly we could
have serialice be an "external programmer" for flashrom!
