flashrom wants to run dmidecode, so built an aport for it

updated the flashrom package to issue a warning if it is installed on a 
grsec kernel:

#apk add flashrom
(1/1) Installing flashrom (0.9.2-r1)
Executing flashrom-0.9.2-r1.post-install

  ************[  flashrom package installation notice ]****************

           You appear to be running a grsec enabled kernel.
    flashrom needs write access to /dev/mem and will likely not work

  *********************************************************************

great!

The patch for makefile is not really necessary since you can override
variables from command line:

# overriding prefix here is not needed unless there are
# hardcoded pathts in the binary. we add it just in case.
make prefix=/usr

...

# install to $pkgdir
make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" prefix=/usr install
