My spec is on perpetual loan to friends, and I have no clue where
it is now :-( so I can't answer my own question
When I write 0xffffffff to an address base register and read it back, the
device indicates its address space size by leaving 1 bits in the positions it
What effect does this have on the device's address space(s)? IOW, does
it continue functioning at the last non -1 value programmed in the base
register, or does it begin decoding at 0xfffffffb onward?

For those who do, no explanation is necessary.
