The command you are using is not exactly correct. You specified only 8
bits to transfer and this is enough to only send the command (0x5). But
SPI master is also supposed to provide clock for the slave to answer.
So, use a different command:

    sspi 0 16 05

Then you'll see that the second byte of the response contains the corret

Same applies when you decide to read your eeprom.

Happy hacking,
