This is limited to CPU and CPU local bus devices (not generic like
PCI), so there could be an out of band mechanism to get/set the
additional data. For example store in op_helper.c could use
cpu_set_amba_properties(...) before the store and afterwards
cpu_get_amba_reply(...). An AMBA device could do the counterpart with
device_get_amba_properties() and device_set_amba_reply(). A generic
device (like NE2k) would not care about the properties or replies.
