I think this is a good idea, but I wasn't sure if it was an acceptable
behaviour change. Should the driver still try to set BCR_WPD when
writing an image (i.e. defer the setting of write enable until later),
or just not set the BCR register at all? I think your last comment was
the latter, but wanted to check.
