Subject: [PATCH] [RESEND] drivers:mtd:spi-nor:checkup FSR error bits

For the Micron SPI NOR, when the erase/program operation fails, especially,
for the failure results from intending to modify protected space, spi-nor
upper layers still get the return which shows the operation succeeds.
This because spi_nor_fsr_ready() only uses bit.7 to device whether ready.
For the most cases, even the error of erase/program occurs, SPI NOR device
is still ready. The device ready and the error are two different cases.
This patch is to fixup this issue and adding FSR (flag status register)
error bits checkup.
The FSR(flag status register) is a powerful tool to investigate the staus
of device, checking information regarding what is actually doing the memory
and detecting possible error conditions.
