Why does Active Serial (AS) configuration fail in Intel®  Agilex™ and Intel Stratix® 10 devices when the configuration flash device is set to 4-byte addressing mode?

Description

In Intel® Agilex™ and Intel® Stratix® 10 devices, you may observe Active Serial (AS) configuration failure when the configuration flash device is set to 4-byte addressing mode.

A patch is available to work around this problem for the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software version 20.1, this will set your configuration flash device to operate in 3-byte addressing mode when you reprogram your configuration flash device using the JIC programming flow.
