It might accept an 82802aC which is a 1MByte part (nice tiny distinction
in the part number eh?) Electrically, there's no problem at all. The
challenge will be to get the chipset to route memory accesses from
fff00000 - fff7ffff correctly. That may be a register configuration.

I don't know much about i810. It may even already be routing those
addresses. If so, fff00000-fff7ffff will appear to be a duplicate of
fff80000-ffffffff when the smaller (original) flash is inserted. At least
that's what happens when I put a 512KByte part in a Clearwater board
(which normally has the 1MByte part).
