A good starting point is the eepro100-diag.c file written by Don Becker.
The *-diag.c code already has hooks for flash programming, but they are
currently unused.  Other cards have flash programming code already built
in and can therefore be used as a template (such as the rtl8139-diag.c).

The good thing with Don Becker's stuff is that there is already a library
for different flash chips from various vendors.  The most common chips
are already implemented.
