In the event the ast2600 comes out and is 64-bit -- I can't imagine
that's likely to happen. I can take solace that this won't be the
only thing that needs retrofitting. But it wouldn't kill me to just
make the change. I'll just have to tweak it to return failure in the
event the address provided isn't found in any region...

Is that all that needs to change for 64-bit addressing support - given
your read of the driver?
