reg00: base=0xd0000000 (3328MB), size=196864MB: uncachable, count=1
reg01: base=0xe0000000 (3584MB), size=197120MB: uncachable, count=1
reg02: base=0x00000000 ( 0MB), size=212992MB: write-back, count=1
reg03: base=0x400000000 (16384MB), size=197120MB: write-back, count=1
reg04: base=0x420000000 (16896MB), size=196864MB: write-back, count=1
