'when internal ECC is enabled' means that those bytes can be accessed
when it's disabled. We should keep exposing the ECC byte sections. Note
that even if ECC sections are not exposed, the core will read those
bytes. They're probably filled with garbage in this case, but we don't
care since we won't use them.

Yes, and that's the right thing to do. We want to know where the ECC
bytes are, especially when doing raw accesses.

I agree with this suggestion: if the free bytes are contiguous, it's
better to expose them as a single section.
