0x0002 A sanitize operation is currently in progress.
0x0003 The most recent sanitize operation failed.
0x0100 Global Data Erased bit If set to 1 then non-volatile storage in the NVM subsystem has not been written to: a) since being manufactured and the NVM subsystem has never been sanitized; or b) since the most recent successful sanitize operation. If cleared to 0, then non-volatile storage in the NVM subsystem has been written to: a) since being manufactured and the NVM subsystem has never been sanitized; or b) since the most recent successful sanitize operation of the NVM subsystem.
