SubjectRE: accessing on-card ram/rom
Date
I looked at the IO-mapping.txt file. It says that
on x86 architecture it should not make any difference.
It also says that "on x86 it _is_ the same memory space. So
on x86 it actually works to just dereference a pointer".

Any inputs on this ?

Thanks and regards,
-hiren
