+- broken-flash-reset : Some flash devices utilize stateful addressing modes
+ (e.g., for 32-bit addressing) which need to be managed
+ carefully by a system. Because these sorts of flash don't
+ have a standardized software reset command, and because some
+ systems don't toggle the flash RESET# pin upon system reset
+ (if the pin even exists at all), there are systems which
+ cannot reboot properly if the flash is left in the "wrong"
+ state. This boolean flag can be used on such systems, to
+ denote the absence of a reliable reset mechanism.
