Maybe wording of my commit message is incorrect, let's try to think about this
commit without macronix words in it. What do you think? Just additional patch
for control TB writes.

mtd: spi-nor: do not touch TB bit without SPI_NOR_HAS_TB

Do not write tb_mask inside status register, unless SPI_NOR_HAS_TB is
present for the chip.

If we talking from OTP point for Macronix then in this case better way to make
lock/unlock inside macronix.c which brings a lot of copypaste. I'll try to
rework it.

No, I'm not sure, I did it more than month ago and I've checked BP0-X bits +
SRWD bits in the documentation at this time for whole set of chips in
macronix.c. This one (mx25l25673g) not even listed in macronix.c. Also SRWD was
present there until 1.3 rev for this chip from documentation.

I've noticed one thing also:

{ "mx25l51245g", INFO(0xc2201a, 0, 64 * 1024, 1024,
SECT_4K | SPI_NOR_DUAL_READ | SPI_NOR_QUAD_READ |
SPI_NOR_4B_OPCODES | SPI_NOR_HAS_LOCK |
SPI_NOR_4BIT_BP) },
{ "mx66l51235l", INFO(0xc2201a, 0, 64 * 1024, 1024,
SPI_NOR_DUAL_READ | SPI_NOR_QUAD_READ |
SPI_NOR_4B_OPCODES | SPI_NOR_HAS_LOCK |
SPI_NOR_4BIT_BP) },

mx25l51245g and mx66l51235l have same id and different flags(SECT_4K).
As example if you have mx66l51235l, driver will take mx25l51245g because it
comes first in the chip list. I don't think that's right but I didn't find
information how to distinguish them.

Thanks.
