Byte count returned by DMA or the HC doesn't mean that the data has
actually been
burnt into the device (due to internal buffering). This is one of the
reasons for
defining the CORRECTLY_PRG_SECTORS_NUM register in the standard which
can be queried to find how much was correctly written.
 Unfortunately it can only be queried after the abort has been issued.
