Hmm, Alwwinner is really funny. Unused macros that just confuse things.

#if defined(CONFIG_ARCH_SUN50IW6)
#define TYPE_SB (0b001)
#define TYPE_NB (0b010)
#define TYPE_FB (0b011)
#else
#define TYPE_SB (0b001)
#define TYPE_NB (0b011)
#define TYPE_FB (0b111)
#endif

So for H6 they define special bin values and actually use different ones
in code. Fun.

I've sent out some testing program to Armbian forums, so hopefully, we'll
collect some real efuse_values from real SoCs, to see what's really being
used in the wild. If we see value 0b010, the BSP code is probably just
wrong.

Interestingly, TYPE_NB 0b010 would be interpreted as normal bin even with
the current BSP code, and TYPE_FB would be misdetected as TYPE_NB.

I'd rather not describe meanings just yet, until we get some real-world
data from H6 owners.
