Oh, we don't really care if multiple entries report the same PXM. We do
assume there may be multiple entires with the same PXM and have tested
this, but we're just allocating one memory target per unique memory
PXM and consider multiple entires comprise the same memory target. That
is okay if since we only need to identify unique PXMs and have no use
for the adderss ranges that make up that target, which is the case
for this series. I see you have a future use that has address ranges
considerations, so separate targets for sparse ranges can definitely
be added.
