sizes are pretty uninteresting... we were even discussing dropping its
output in the "probing for" line.
it does not make sense to probe like we do currently. we resend the
same commands over and over again and get back the same answer if
everything works correctly; just to check if the answer matches the
current chip to be probed... fixing this is on carl-daniel's roadmap,
but i don't know any details yet.
