The purpose is to set one possible value which may be used later in parsing smpt.
In current driver, if we do nothing with the post-bfpt fixup, then the width will
be unset. Otherwise, maybe the width can also be set in spi_nor_smpt_addr_width()

+ if (!nor->addr_width)
+ nor->addr_width = 3;
return nor->addr_width;

But set when parsing bfpt seems more reasonable.

Fine. :)
