 *
 *
 *    DEV NOTE: the PDC Procedures reference states that:
 *    "A minimum of 96 bytes of Stable Storage is required. Providing more than
 *    96 bytes of Stable Storage is optional [...]. Failure to provide the
 *    optional locations from 96 to 192 results in the loss of certain
 *    functionality during boot."
 *
 *    Since locations between 96 and 192 are the various paths, most (if not
 *    all) PA-RISC machines should have them. Anyway, for safety reasons, the
 *    following code can deal with just 96 bytes of Stable Storage, and all
 *    sizes between 96 and 192 bytes (provided they are multiple of struct
 *    device_path size, eg: 128, 160 and 192) to provide full information.
 *    One last word: there's one path we can always count on: the primary path.
 *    Anything above 224 bytes is used for 'osdep2' OS-dependent storage area.
 *
 *    The first OS-dependent area should always be available. Obviously, this is
 *    not true for the other one. Also bear in mind that reading/writing from/to
 *    osdep2 is much more expensive than from/to osdep1.
 *    NOTE: We do not handle the 2 bytes OS-dep area at 0x5D, nor the first
 *    2 bytes of storage available right after OSID. That's a total of 4 bytes
 *    sacrificed: -ETOOLAZY :P
 *
 *    The current policy wrt file permissions is:
 *	- write: root only
 *	- read: (reading triggers PDC calls) ? root only : everyone
 *    The rationale is that PDC calls could hog (DoS) the machine.
 *
 *	TODO:
 *	- timer/fastsize write calls
