Trying to write/read efuse on a ATmega164p results in:
"ef" memory type not defined for part "ATmega164P"

avrdude: Version 6.0.1, compiled on Nov 18 2013 at 11:16:38

System wide configuration file is "/opt/local/etc/avrdude.conf"

In avrdude v6.0.1 from macports, the system wide config file does not correctly define the efuse memory type for this part. In version 5.11 (included in Arduino application), the m164p has its own declaration, while in v6.0.1 the declaration is based on a parent part "m16" with some modifications. However the m16 doesn't support an efuse, and the new m164p declaration is missing the efuse definition (amongst other things).

I've attached a .avrduderc file with an amended m164p entry, however I'm not sure if this is completely correct. Perhaps someone with knowledge of the file format could check it?

In addition, the ocdrev value has changed from v5.11 to 3. Given the other errors, could someone confirm if this value is correct?
