Ah, cool, I hadn't seen that before.  That seems like the way to go if this is
truly an implementatic-specific register mapping.  As I was falling asleep last
night I remembered that we did end up with implementation-specific register
maps for some of the IP we integrated.  That was usually the case for IP where
we had some signals that we just didn't know what to do with, and while I know
the DDR integration was a real trip I'm not sure if that's where these
registers came from.

Hopefully someone who has better access to these hardware implementations can
