My datasheet talks about 8 kB sectors and 64 kB blocks in "Figure 3.
Memory Map", but "Table 8. FWH Flash Registers Configuration Map" only
mentions registers for the 8 kB sectors in the top 64 kB block
explicitly. "Table 8" also mentions "XX002H Whole Block Lock Register"
as generic placeholder, and AFAICS those two X mean you have one block
lock register for each of the 15 bottom 64 kB blocks and one for each of
the 8 top 8 kB sectors. That also means the 82802ab unlocking as is
can't be used.

I was unable to find any 128 kB reference in my datasheet, so I'm going
to Nack that part.

I have a slightly different interpretation of the datasheet (see above),
so I'm not sure how to proceed.

Killing sharplhf00l04.c is a good thing, though, so that part is
