[OpenTRV-dev] AVR (328P) EEPROM puzzler

Have you confirmed that the value of newKey being passed to
setPrimaryBuilding16ByteSecretKey is as expected? As in it is definitely
the storing of the key?
On the assumption that it is definitely storing the key I would assume that
in the fail case the EEPROM has been erased and hence the existing key is
16 0xFF. Therefore when writing the key the eeprom_smart_clear_bits would
be used to set each byte, so have you tried disabling
