That would be me. I looked at the VHDL for the hardware. The registers seem to
be aligned to 8 bytes but only use the LS byte of each. So it probably doesn't
matter whether the memory transactions are 64-bit or 8-bit.
I know the hardware doesn't support byte-enables either, which is probably why
the registers were padded this way. Probably also why the inb_p and outb_p
macros were redefined.
