The power cycle has reset the flash chip into read mode. The driver still 
thinks it's in status mode.

The chip driver's resume function needs to make sure the chip is in a known 
state, rather than assuming it'll still be in the same state it was before 
the sleep.

I'm sure I'd done this before.
