Where does the multimedia device address space start? I see 0x71000000
to 0x71002000 is for the clock-controller. Is the multimedia device at
0x71002000 to 0x71003000? If so they're next to each other but not
sharing the same register space. Is ap_apb_regs more like a soft macro
that combines a few clks with some multimedia device?
