Hi All.

Could anyone please explain the following thing which I see
in cfi_cmdset_0001.c.

After writing a Program command and data we are do
udelay(chip->word_write_time), but when erasing a sector
we instead call schedule_timeout(HZ) as the Erase command
is written. Is it just ocassionally or there is a point in
doing that way?

Thanks, Nick.
