Moving the default quad_enable method to spi_nor_no_sfdp_init_params(),
thus also for spi_nor_init_params_deprecated() because it calls
spi_nor_no_sfdp_init_params(), will not change the behavior for the
deprecated way of initializing the params, isn't it? A more reason
to use PARSE_SFDP/SKIP_SFDP, we'll get rid of the deprecated params
init at some point.

No new fixes for spi_nor_init_params_deprecated().
