Check out Ian's email - the chip memory is in the CPU I/O address space.
If it accessible in the PCI or AGP space, it would show up in the CPU
What I'm wondering now is how such chips have been used by drivers in the
past. My guess is that there were alternatives to using the I/O space,
or they didn't use DMA. In this case, the chip *must* DMA from its own
internal memory, and hence forced this enhancement.
