[ECOS] inconsistency after aborting fconfig

after answering the question
"Update RedBoot non-volatile configuration - continue (y/n)?"
with "n" the content of the fconfig workspace (in RAM)
is not restored.

Giving flash_write_config() a return value (returning false if
updating is aborted) and handle it might be a solution:

do_flash_config() in redboot/current/src/flash.c:

    if (!flash_write_config()) {
        // aborted, restore contents
        memcpy(config, backup_config, sizeof(struct _config));

what do you think about it?
