I think that your chip doesn't allow all sectors to be erased
simultaneously. I have changed the behaviour of the bootloader recently
so that it erases them one at a time instead so now it supports more
chips (and I couldn't notice any perfermance loss on chips that allow
simultaneous block erases either :-).

Here's a patch for tools/e100boot/cbl/flash.c. Apply it and run "make
install" in tools/e100boot.
