Hm? You say strapped, to me that means controlled by board
design/jumpers. Is the address always set by hardware, and
then that address is readable in the PAR registers?

I won't write that until it can be tested by someone before commit.

Maybe Carsten still has it?

Does anyone else have access to a SC520 system?

I hope you agree that it is not so useful to spend time on adding
support for a 7+ year old board, which noone can test on, that has
already been compiled out of the utility by default since forever.
