is this a vendor table?

indeed, A18:A17 is 00b, 3-byte only addressing. A18:A17 should have been of
value 01b.

                     ^ xx1x_xxxxb is set, and confirms that the flash supports
dedicated 4-Byte address instruction set.

BFPT looks sane, with the exception of the 3-byte only addressing.

You have the same problem as Liu. Check Liu's patch at
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1071453/. Ideally would be to know if these 2
parts are the only ones that have this bug or if there are more. Can you contact
ISSI and ask them which parts are affected? If ISSI will not respond in a
reasonable amount of time, we can update Liu's patch to have a single post_bfpt
function that checks if the flash id corresponds to IS25(WP/LP)256D before
setting addr_width to 4.
