i'd thought of that and was already looking at the code.  i think
that, as a start, it wouldn't be hard to add support for multiple,
*identical* chips, each with an arbitrary starting address.

this is what we have here.  is this scenario common enough to warrant
adding that kind of support to physmap?  i can't imagine it would be
that hard.
