A "bank" of memory is the set of chips that are addressed  using  the
same  chip  select  line.  And  "application" is usually a term for a
program running in (Linux) user Space (vs.  kernel  space).  Assuming
you  use  standard  terms,  then please tell your application that it
cannot modify the hardware.

The flash driver and/or your board config file.

The rule on staying alive as a program manager is to give 'em a  num-
ber or give 'em a date, but never give 'em both at once.
