This is too small thing to deserve a separate config option. And the
help text does not explain what for is this needed, what's the problem
with re-trying the erase operation - it looks like over-design.

Is it please possible to remove this config option?

Otherwise I'm fine with the patches, thanks! I'm putting them to my l2
tree but I wait an updated version from you without this option. In the
worst case, if you can prove the need for this option, make it a module
parameter instead please.

Thanks a lot! This is good stuff and I know it works.

Best Regards,
