For a uniform erase regions device, erase_map.regions points to the
address of erase_map.uniform_region.
There is a memcpy of nor->params, which includes
erase_map.regions, and erase_map.uniform_region.
The memcpy destination erase_map.regions pointer needs to be updated to
the new address of uniform_region.

Without this change, when a uniform erase region spi-nor device used
the multiple erase regions code path,
e.g. spi_nor_has_uniform_erase forced to return false,
erase operations failed in find_erase_region.

This code path is not currently used for uniform eraseregion devices,
but is useful to allow use of minor (4K) erase while otherwise using 64K erase.

Only build tested on master,
what devices or approach is used to test master MTD SPI NOR?

Found and tested in kernel 5.4 on Openwrt on a MIPS access point,
while testing changes to mtdpart.c to allow writes for partitions
on 4K (minor) erase boundaries.
- spi_nor_has_uniform_erase forced to return false,
  so that a request for a 4K erase could use the multiple erase sectors
  code path on a uniform erase regions SPI NOR device.
