All I know is, I saw the "QRY" probe respond loud and clear from this
chip, but the CFI data structure that the mtd code then picked up was
garbage.  The package is marked

I got a private e-mail from a Mr. Conley at Intel which said there is
"a problem with some of the B3s that the CFI command comes back with
information that is an invalid C3 information block."  He hoped to
get more information and pass it on.
