Where should I mention the BP bits? In the choice or in the help text.
I tried to keep the choice prompt as easy to understand as possible, so
an
user who doesn't know anything about how the write protection actually
works
can still make that choice (without first reading a datasheet). Also
keep in
mind, that there is also the per sector locking. Wouldn't this option
also
apply to that?

Therefore, I'd mention in the help text, that (currently) the BP bits
are
affected.

SPI_NOR_BP_IS_VOLATILE sounds good to me.
