Reorder list of options to test

If a chip is unknown the user is asked to test and report the result to
the mailing list. Having `-VE` listed as the last option can result in
an unbootable system for users not knowing what the command does, since
rebooting the system after that command is fatal since the flash chip is
empty. Example report at

Reorder the options to prevent such accidents in the future.
