[Lv Zheng]

There might be GAS defined with AccessWidth = 0.
And its BitOffset can still make senses.
That's why I put the check here, making it a tuning rather than a regression safe check.

Thanks for the information, I'll submit the fix of the address check.
To convert it to:
ACPI_IS_ALIGNED(address, reg->bit_width / 8)
This is my fault.

Thanks
