PDP-11 CPU internal registers appear in I/O address space, with some 
exceptions: the general registers are not visible there except in the 11/10.  
(They have listed addresses, but those only work from the console, not from 
programs, with that one exception.)  And yes, on the PDP-10, the general 
registers live at memory addresses 0 to 017.
