FPGA Bridges gate bus signals between a host and FPGA. So the FPGA
region could not be accessed by host when doing configuration. But for
this authentication, we are just writing the flash, we don't actually
touch the FPGA soft logic. The host should still be able to operate on
the old logic before reboot, is it?
