[PATCH v6 1/2] mtd: spi-nor: Delay the initialization of bank_size

Bank size is derived from the chip's size, which in
spi_nor_init_default_params() can still be zero if the size is not
hardcoded in a table (eg. sfdp parsing). We need to delay the
initialization of this field in the "late" helpers.

Based on the fact that RWW compatible devices will use the bank_size to
derive in which bank an access is made, we absolutely want to avoid
divisions by 0. Right now there is no such opportunity between
spi_nor_init_default_params() and spi_nor_late_init_params() but it is
probably safer to enforce a default value (assuming 1 bank) as early as
possible, just in case some day code using this variable is moved
earlier than expected.

I made the choice to keep a default value, to be honest this is not
actually needed today, so feel free to drop the line if you don't like
it, both choices seem reasonable to me.
