I could do so, but it could break current configs where 0 meant "probing
at prelisted addresses"... (but users should read docs anyway ;))

In CE, there are 32Mib for system rom, and 32Mib for user, and chip is
alone on the board, so yes it is 64. I have chip ref somewhere if it can

Right then, it explains both points. I'll declare it as a 32Mib chip in

[mmio - readb/writeb]

Hm, there is already #ifdef-ing using
-32bit mmio for __arm__
-16bit mmio for __ppc__
-readb/writeb else.
I read other PDA's config based on the same arch (Xscale), where it
seems to work. This issue seems quite "local" to my works, could this be
a side effect of something else ?

I'll submit a patch for these.
