[RFC] cli_classic: Add `--mode (read|write|verify|erase)` parameter

In case the user only wants to specify files for specific layout
regions, we need a way to set the operation without specifying a
file. Instead of making the <filename> argument optional, we can
add a new syntax for this particular purpose. This way, we avoid
complex command line parsing and can do more sanity checks and
provide better error messages.

TODO: Update manpage in case this gets accepted.
