At least some of the firmware logic attempts to deal with this segmentation.  9984 firmware had bugs in one area that I fixed,
but probably there are other bugs and that is why it fails for 9980 firmware.

Even if I fix my firmware, that doesn't help everyone else with stock firmware.

At best, maybe enable this type of logic for only exact firmware with proper feature
flag showing that it is known to work with it.
