It is quite complicated. { 0x6d, 0x54 } (= 0x546d) in data represent
address 0x546c and content are data. You need to apply mask 0xfffe for
0x546d and you get address where data will be written (so 0x546c).

I'm thinking if checks is really needed. But probably moving it to
separate function is good idea.
