Hm... That is most likely my fault. I think there are quite some other
chips where I deliberately added the OTP comment (and flag) in the same
form although they are one-time-lock-only.
Rationale: I wanted to make any chip with any permanently lockable bits
easily recognizable before starting to work on adding support for it.

Therefore I think the original comment is the way to go for the time
being (no need to resend the patch though, Hatim).

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
