        4. Don't hardcode the cmdset in cfi_jedec.

I keep using very different flash chips so I want one probe path for
all of the chips looks good. 

Note there is a good argument for joining the probe paths
Handling chip interleaving, unless we can make it simple
we don't want that duplicated many times.

I'll try to have something working for 2 & 4 by the end of today.  Any
hints on why the cmdset drivers don't compile?
