Without this change, the code will stay in flash mode until a single
read occurs.  The code sequence you are wanting to support using will
issue a read before trying to unlock again?

Actually, I suppose it will want to verify the written data before
moving on, so this does make sense.

Is the overhead of switching the modes significant enough to justify
the lazy switch-back?  (If so, maybe I'll look at this for cfi01 too.)
