I did say "device classes like" for a reason :)

I have access to host controllers obviously, what I don't have is access
to any client devices with suitable register maps.

You should delete all the text that isn't directly related to your
comments, you appeared to have not deleted any content at all from the
mail. There were pages and pages of stuff with no comments at all.
