I've tested this patch and it fixes the erasesize for S25FS128S and
our 128k partitions are writeable again with this patch.

Nevertheless, I think this is coincidence. I don't think that it
makes sense to OR all the erase types from all regions in one
bitmask and derive any uniform erasesize out of it.
This makes little sense for me in case of non-uniform maps.

I believe, the culprit here is one level higher, in the MTD partitioning
code (mtdpart.c) which has to be taught about non-uniform maps
but there is no infrastructure for this currently.

What is possible to fix still is to choose smallest, not biggest
erasesize for uniform case. I have such a patch, but I need hands
on on a S25FS128S configured in uniform mode.

Non uniform case requires MTD layer rework. We just cannot handle
this hardware with just one erasesize in mind.
