Using this test covers both zero length/unimplemented BARs and BARs that
aren't mapped by the host. Unmapped BARs on the host are exposed as
unimplemented BARs to the vfio user. I wonder if this is still
necessary if we do the iomap/rom_map on open as I propose.

Yep, I expect there are a number of endian issues here, good call
pointing them out.
