Well the problem here is, that the SFDP setup is skipped though the
flash would support SFDP. If the jedec id wasn't already in the table,
there would be the flag SPI_NOR_QUAD_READ and the SFDP would be
parsed. But because there is already the legacy device (which likely
doesn't support SFDP) it really doesn't fit.

Its unclear to me, why the SFDP is only parsed if one of the
SPI_NOR_*_READ flags are set.
