Is it just a matter of adding mtc* lines to the config for the 2nd and
subsequent floating address - or is there some risk of false positives
if a different device is at that address?

GENERIC already has a couple of devices with alternate CSRs (I don't
know if they are alternates on a given machine, or if some machines
put their initial device at different CSR addresses)
