Yes, I think so ... whats with the following proposal:


I checked for all calls from nand_erase_opts, that the nand_erase_options_t
parameters are initialized with 0 ... so this patch should not change
current behaviour.

Should I do this in a seperate patch, or add it to the "dfu, nand:
before write a buffer to nand, erase the nand sectors" patch, so it adds
no dead code ...

Yes, thats not what I wanted ...

Yes, seems so ...
