Hmm. I've tried adding support for locking on Macronix to U-Boot
but that was quite a bit more involved than this. Note in particular the
first part of my commit message:

  Macronix chips implements locking in (power-of-two multiple of) 64K
  blocks, not as a fraction of the chip's size.

At least, that was true for the chip I was interested in and the few
others whose data sheets I grabbed to double-check. So I'm a bit
skeptical that this can work out-of-the-box without introducing a new
struct spi_nor_locking_ops.
