On the one hand, the revision is being used to distinguish the board.
More precisely, the feature ID id determining the actual hardware
involved, altera-spi connected to a particular indirect register mailbox.
This is a different feature id used by the n3000 which has a different
indirect register mailbox with a NIOS hanshake. So in this case the revision
is being used to specify remote end of the SPI connection, d5005 BMC vs.
n5010 BMC.

I think in this case 4 bits is enough. We've only had two instances
of this hardware in 5 years. Certainly any future instances of this
hardware should have a register describing the remote end of the SPI
connection. This hardware change would then require a new feature id.
