  - pci_dram_offset: address at which system memory starts when viewed from a
                     PCI device. CPU and PCI may have a different view to RAM.
  - isa_mem_base: address where the ISA memory space is located (first 1 MB on
		  a PC)
  - isa_io_base: address where the ISA I/O space is located (65536 I/O ports on
		 a PC)
