Ok, there is the rule of thumb to design hardware register and memory layout.
Use aligned 32bit quantity for every purpose and manipulate them in that way.
This principle is very handy, have been good for the last decade although M$
engineers do not understand in the 21st Century.  PLS note again, I never talk
about compiler, struct, or __packed__ something.
