1.In platform.ini, InsydeFlash add more keys for model checking process.

For example, ODM may have one BIOS for different model.
They need to use different ID in different model.

There are two kinds of solutions.
First, user add ID list in ini file. User set Flag to 2.


Second, ODM reports all IDs in one string at IHISI function 11h and BVDT.
For example, the string will be like "AAA1AAA2AAA3AAA4AAA5AAA6"
