I get the problem now. spi_nor_write_16bit_sr_and_check() does not modify the
value of the QE bit, which is good in the lock/unlock() case. We want to
lock/unlock() without enabling or disabling the Quad Mode.

As you found, the problem comes later in spi_nor_sr2_bit1_quad_enable() because
I use there spi_nor_write_16bit_sr_and_check() which keeps the value of the QE
bit, without setting it to one, so the spi_nor_sr2_bit1_quad_enable() did not
enable the Quad Mode if not previously enabled.

What I'll do is to introduce a new argument to:
static int spi_nor_write_16bit_sr_and_check(struct spi_nor *nor, u8 status_new,
u8 mask, bool set_quad_enable)

and do a
if (set_quad_enable)
sr_cr[1] |= CR_QUAD_EN_SPAN;
after initializing sr_cr[1]

The lock/unlock() methods will call the function with set_quad_enable being
false (we don't want to modify the QE value), and the
spi_nor_sr2_bit1_quad_enable() will call it with set_quad_enable being true, we
want to set QE to one (we don't care of the QE bit previous value).

We'll avoid code duplication, lock/unlock() and spi_nor_sr2_bit1_quad_enable()
calling the same method.

Cheers,
ta
