Thought this was interesting and potentially helpful. How to decrypt BIOS passwords from system hash.

Nice info but of course no good for Thinkpad and their security chips. For those only a hardware based solution works: in other words solder a data cable to the ATMEL chip and read its contents.
Like for example here:

And that only works because the ATMEL flash chip stores the contents without strong (or any?) encryption.
