According to the instantiation:

The lower 16 bits has the RSSI value, and the upper 16 bits has the
over-count value.

If you were to just use 6 bits of the RSSI value, I'd recommend the
MSBs and not the LSBs.

Is this really the RSSI - or should the RSSI actually be a function of
the amount of gain or attenuation in the RF stages?  I am sure it gets
pretty difficult calculating an estimate for the amount of power at
the antenna.

Should this value be an expression in dB of the received power?
