What I meant was testing all the MMIO accesses to the various
distributor MMIO regions.

For example, writing full words to all registers (some value) reading
back the value, correcting for RAZ/WI semantics, and testing that byte
accesses to those registers where that's allowed also works.

If adding that on top of this series sounds like a good idea, someone
should add it to the bottom of their (presumably already long) todo
list, myself included.
