Hi Lukas,

This means an orderly reboot will work, but a unexpected SoC reset w/o power cycle will still hang. So if the use case is something that *must* reboot after any kind of reset (e.g. HW watchdog) this flag cannot fix the (HW) problem.

Note that in case of OpenWrt, there if 481-mtd-spi-nor-rework-broken-flash-reset-support.patch,
which causes the flash to restore to 3 byte addressing after each operation.

So it should be "good-enough" for most use-cases.
