Hm, do we need/want to make these changes in every flash chip driver?

I will investigate refactoring this logic into the calling layer
instead. This will be a test of the block size info in flashchips.c.

Please don't commit this just yet.

No 1.0 so far. :( I'd appreciate many patches to the TESTED_ flags,
still have some texts to go through (though I've changed some) and
I'd like comments on the swapopts patch, as well as the fake chip
entry vs. force-read command and the suggestion to always make the
user confirm that the chipset probe is correct. (Not with -f though.)
