Correct. I missed the case where the ITS doesn't share anything. That's
pretty unlikely though (you loose all the benefit of v4.1, and I don't
really see how you'd make it work reliably).

Hey, I'm a SW guy, I don't design the hardware! ;-)

My take is that the RD and the ITS can communicate over the shared
table, hence my remark above about SVPET==0. But as I said, I'm not a HW
guy.

Thanks,
