An ASPI Call isn't "Direct hardware access".  "Direct hardware access" works
under wine if you are root and if you allow the accessed hardware ports in
wine. However since Win95 no programm uses direct hardware access. The
programs use drivers, and you can't run these drivers in wine.

You can.

Whether wine's ASPI is suitable for a firmware update, you will not know
until you try. This may leave you with a bricked firmware, if things go
