Erasing more than one sector at a time?

The erase functions in cfi_cmd_*.c seem to support erasing more than 1
sector per call.

I'm wondering why the parameter validation at the start of those
function specifically prohibits erasing more than one sector.  Is this
because the interface is defined this way or is it an oversight?

I'm thinking of removing the validation so my user programs don't have
to loop when erasing more than one sector.
