The first cell of the child bus address is the chip select, the second
cell is the offset into the chip select.

That looks like SDRAM is on CS1/6, not CS0/6.

We haven't been putting ordinary RAM under the localbus node, even
though it's connected through the localbus on these chips.

A single pair is fine.
