Thanks for the patch. I haven't checked against the pflash spec yet,
but this looks like it's probably the right thing.

The only two machines which use a setup with multiple devices (ie
which specify device_width to the pflash_cfi01) are vexpress and virt.
For all other machines this patch leaves the behaviour unchanged.

Q: do we need to have some kind of nasty hack so that pre-2.9 virt
still gets the old broken values in the CFI table, for version and
migration compatibility? Ccing Drew for an opinion...
