From: Alexander Sverdlin <alexander.sverdlin@nokia.com>

spi_nor_parse_sfdp() modifies the passed structure so that it points to
itself (params.erase_map.regions to params.erase_map.uniform_region). This
makes it impossible to copy the local struct anywhere else.

Therefore only use memcpy() in backup-restore scenario. The bug may show up
like below:
