Since "memory" is not quite specific enough, but "board-control" is a
little bit Freescale and application-centric, how about
"memmapped-device", or something like that.  This could encompass FPGAs,
ASICs, CPLDs or anything else that is memory mapped.  Many custom
embedded boards have lots of such devices and could benefit from this
