The datasheet for the AM29LV320D lists it - page 23 of AMD publication 
#23579, Rev A; issued Nov 1, 2000.

Personally, my inclination would be to return the poxy things to AMD
complaining that the CFI tables are broken. How many are you buying?

Otherwise, I think the JEDEC ID may be the only option.
