Well, 1001(r11) means the address of the operand (meaning its low byte,
since it's a longword) is the value in r11 plus 1001.  That line came
from my disassembler, so the offset (1001) is in hex.

So if the SLU-available bit is at ffea01, r11 would need to hold ffda00
for that to be what it's accessing.
