Sorry, this is my first patch. My next patch i wrote with you wish. (

Sorry i don't know which flag must be used. You right these chips have a
only WREN instruction, and i think if these chips doesn't have a feature
that i exclude feature_bits. Maybe we will be able to specify the details.

You right this is my typos, and i fixed them.

You right this chip used a four 256 Mb chips. And 256 Mb chip has a three
instruction subsector 20(hex) sector D8(hex) bulk C7(hex) erase commands.
But chip N25Q00AA13 has a other op-code to initiate die erase command
C4 (hex)

You reading patch wrong.  The probe_timing line for this chip is present
below in source code.

Because only LE25FW806A has a small sector erase op-code instruction, other
chips didn't have it.

how to delete all versions of the patch and leave only comments in one

I send a new version patch
