In case Status register 1:SR_SRWD was set (either by software or write
protect pin), sr_unlock fails on spi_nor_write_sr_and_check in 8-bit
mode due to fact that written value will not match read value.

Problem was observed with n25q128a11 device having protection enabled
by W# pin.

Problem was uncovered by 82de6a6fb67e16 ("mtd: spi-nor: Fix the writing
of the Status Register on micron flashes"). Commit selected 8-bit mode
for micron devices. In 16-bit mode, CR content is verified, while in
8-bit SR is checked for sanity.
