Played around amba registers on bcm4716. For all amba cores present
(under all I mean broadcom ip core agents, oob router core, erom core,
and other I-dont-know-what-for cores present at 0x18100000). All those
feature AMBA_CID (0xb105f00d) as PrimeCell ID, and slightly different
PrimeCell PeripheralIDs:
* vendor 0xBB, part_number 0x368 for broadcom cores' agents;
* vendor 0xBB, part_number 0x367 for OOB router core (don't ask me wth
is this please);
* vendor 0xBB, part_number 0x366 for EROM core;
ARM vendor id is 0x41. Might 0xBB is Broadcom vendor id but I've found
no evidence for that with google.

Have nice day,
George
