unfortunately, it doesn't. I was too fast reporting the success...
So erasesize is back to the value before non-uniform support patches,
partitions are not made read only any more, but actual write or
erase still fails.

I'll investigate further.

Taking into account the comments from Boris, we probably need this patch
anyway.
