It seems to be writing to flash correctly.

I dump the flash before any changes and write the results to a file.
After fconfig -i I dump flash and write the results a new file and
compare to the fist one. They looks fine since I can see the
differences (my new ip address and mask, for example).
It seems that flash_get_config isn't working properly!? Is it possible?
BTW, I also try to change my ip address again with >ip_address but I
got the following message: Sorry, networking is not available.
