Is it necessary to reset watchdog for every status register read? How
small is the timeout? Resetting too often will impact performance
depending on overhead of this call.
Is it not sufficient to reset watchdog once per page write (in
spi_nor_write()) and once per sector erase (in spi_nor_erase())?
