Unfortunately, it turns out the FSBE/S does not always work ok.
Some (all?) FSBEs have a DMA chip revision 4 (aka DMA ESC gate array), which
the current esp/dma combo does not recognise. Probably this DMA revision
needs different treatment in a couple of places, but I've yet to find out
what exactly that should be.
